Did You Know?


Filming in Czechoslovakia was interrupted by the Soviet invasion of August 1968. Cast and crew were taken to safety in a convoy of 28 taxis, except for Robert Logan, who stayed behind with film gear in order to capture the invasion on film and photo. The movie was completed in Italy and Austria. See more »


During several quiet night scenes near the end of the movie, crickets can be clearly heard. However, in Germany in the month of March, the weather would still be too cold for crickets to be present. See more »


Lt. Phil Hartman: Get the men up. We're moving out.
Sgt. Angelo: Those men are tired. They'll kill us.
Lt. Phil Hartman: They're so happy we didn't find any Germans here, they want us to keep going until we do.

Landmark war film with career best performances
25 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Famous for its Apocalypse Now-style production problems. Filmed in then-Czechoslovakia where the then Communist government offered up a whole town (due to be cleared to make way for a strip mine) for cinematic destruction. But halfway through shooting the Russian army invaded to remove reformist president Alexander Dubcek. George Segal and Robert Vaughn give career best performances, but it also marks the moment when US war films moved beyond action-adventure and into a darker realm. The capture of the Remagen Bridge in 1945 was a magnificent feat of arms by the US Army. But in the film account the troops are slovenly, often fearful thugs, slanging and striking their officers, robbing corpses and killing children. It's not really about World War II at all, but about how many Americans saw the Vietnam War. The Bridge at Remagen is out of time, set in 1945 but made in 1968, the year of the Tet Offensive, when the US realised that Vietnam was a lost war. It shows.
