The M1 Carbines used in the film have bayonet studs mounted under their barrels. However, this modification was not incorporated until after World War II, when the carbines underwent refurbishment and updating at Government arsenals. See more »
The line "Nobody Ever Wins" appears in place of "The End" just before the end credits start, which is appropriate given the film's anti-war message. See more »
Although some of the characters may be stereotypes (the twirp LT and the crusty SGT) there is a lot to this movie that makes it worthwhile viewing. However, whenever i see this movie in the listings, i always tune in ... the beautiful Clint Walker is the main attraction. Can't take my eyes off him!! Gorgeous eyes and that physique ... definitely what a Real Man should look like!!
