Trivia

The "Remagen" of the film's title refers to a town in Germany in the Rhineland-Palatinate, which is in the district of Ahrweiler. Both the town and the bridge are actually located on the Rhine River. See more »

Goofs

Kreuger says to Von Brock that he heard the Russians were at the Elbe River. The Russians didn't get there until April, after the Remagen bridge was taken. Kreuger should have said the Russians were at the Oder River, which would have been correct for Jan.-Feb. 1945. See more »

Quotes

[Kreuger is offered a last cigarette before he is executed by firing squad. He and the Nazi Officer hear planes]
Major Paul Kreuger: Ours or theirs?
Nazi Officer: Enemy planes, sir.
Major Paul Kreuger: But who is the enemy?

Well done WWII depiction.
22 January 1999 | by (Wittmann, AZ) – See all my reviews

Only someone who was there, e.g. the U.S. 9th Armored Division, can really say whether this movie about the Remagen bridgehead comes close to what they went through in securing the Ludendorf, the last remaining intact bridge over the Rhine, on March 7, 1945. Only they know of the finality of the gunfire, and the smell it left in the air along with the smell of the dead bodies. But as a combat veteran I was impressed by this movie as it retained the tension and fear involved in war. I do not like most movies because they gloss over reality, but this movie closely shows the different types of individuals that usually make up an army. There are the commanders at the top who see the overall picture, the self-centered career minded officer types who reap only contempt, and the officers and their N.C.O.s-on the American side armored infantry-that just do what they have to do and are just trying to survive. It also shows the close, emotional bonds that war can create between soliders involved in battle. This movie keeps it dirty, with nothing very unbelievable. It gives a good idea of an armored division on the move-and that ain't much fun.
