Trivia

This was the only real war movie which James Stewart starred in. He had vowed never to make one, since he complained they were hardly ever realistic. Harry Morgan said he believed that Stewart made an exception for this film because it was definitely anti-war. See more »

Goofs

Major Baldwin's jeep is obviously a post-World War II model, with the visible differences being the jeep seen in the film had larger headlights, a gas tank filler neck and cap in a cutout in the left rear quarter panel (instead of under the driver's seat), and the axe and shovel were affixed under the right front door cutout (instead of under the left front cutout), all different from World War II jeeps.

Quotes

Major Baldwin: Colonel, I'm gonna blow up this road. Now, how can we keep the people off?
Col. Kwan: Off?
Major Baldwin: Well, I-I, I need them stopped for about ten minutes. Can you do it?
Col. Kwan: How?
Major Baldwin: Well, uh, how 'bout, uh, how 'bout if we get a couple of empty gasoline drums, put 'em on either side of the road, stretch a rope across.
Col. Kwan: They'd go under the rope.
Major Baldwin: Well, then we get some Chinese soldiers to explain to them, explain to them that we're cutting the road. How 'bout that?

Plot of Movie
17 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Mountain Road is the story of an American Enginers destroying military stockpile ahead of a Japanese advance in late World War II. The corrupted Chinese Warlords refused to equip their men for the fight against the Japaneses and wanted to hoard so they could profit from the sale of gasoline and military supplies. One of the themes of the movie is the cultural clash between Americans and Chineses. One of the major difference between the two was the value of human life. I wish that this movie was available on DVD or VHS tape as I would like to have it for my collection. It is well worth while seeing to see one aspect of World War II in China.
