Soon after the American plane crash-lands, the Japanese soldiers throw a hand grenade into the plane, and there's a big explosion. Later Captain Bourke and Airman Keller are shown inside the plane trying to operate the radio, and there's no damage inside it. 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 »
Just caught this one again recently. It's difficult to write an honest, objective review of a movie that's this bad. Hard to believe that anyone remotely connected to the military had anything to do with the script or direction of this turkey. Ever war movie cliché ever uttered turns up here somewhere. Hard to decide if Tommy Sands' performance as the hard-as-nails rookie lieutenant is howlingly funny or just outrageously bad. This is Hollywood's version of war. It's watchable only if you don't mind being clubbed over the head with the "message" every few minutes (that being "why can't we all just get along?") As a lifelong fan of Sinatra, I'm hugely disappointed.
