Early in the movie, Henry Fonda's character visits the "up front" front. In one scene, there is a soldier in a bunk reading a folded magazine, and the viewing audience can see the page he is not reading. The magazine is the April 1964 issue of Playboy and the page he has opened is the beginning of a pictorial on Playmate Donna Michelle. In the same shot a photograph of Rita Hayworth as "Gilda" can be seen on the wall. "Gilda" was not released until 1946. The action takes place in 1944. See more »
This must be the worst war flick out there bearing a name as big as "Battle of the Bulge"...or rather, "Battle for the Gas". There's so many historical inaccuracies in this movie, that ironically, watching it is laughingly entertaining seeing that the director is totally serious. There's so many bad things about this movie. Probably the thing that ticked me off the most is the fearsome Tiger tanks are allied tanks with German insignias cheaply slapped on them. Even so, all the German tanks look the same, as if we are told that the Germans only have one type of tank involved throughout the whole battle. Oh, but that's not all. Eventually we get to a scene where an American tank get its turret blown off, with the crews inside still ALIVE!!! WTF were they thinking? The stupid director are taking the audience as fools in light of such a great historical event? This movie is so ludicrous and an insult to all the poor souls who died in the battle, that I could care less if every character died in the movie. Yes, even the Malmedy massacre scene didn't move me. The movie was this BAD.
