One of the first films to be shot behind the Iron Curtain. Czechoslovakia was seen by Russia as becoming too liberal in its values, and in attempting to justify the forthcoming invasion by the USSR, Soviet agents spread the rumor that the American soldiers in the film were real. Most of them, in fact, were played by Czech students. Pictures of stored movie props were published as "proof" of weapons shipments from the US to arm local "reactionaries".

Early in the movie, Lt. Phil Hartman and Cpl. Grebs try a daring run toward a farmhouse which is occupied by an enemy anti-tank troop. They start the run in a captured German vehicle, equipped with a rear mounted machine gun. The car also has a very distinctive pair of red lamps on the front. As the car speeds into battle with the German defenses, it is somehow transformed into a different vehicle, for when it arrives at the farmhouse yard we see it has lost the gun mount, gained a wiper on the passenger's side, and the red lamps have disappeared.

Major Paul Kreuger

Capt. Otto Baumann
You will find out when we attack.
