Goofs

As he is imparting new orders to Capt. Colt, Maj. Barnes asks him, "You don't want to let the Russkies beat us to Berlin, do you?" Berlin was explicitly in the Russian zone of operations, and American forces were never assigned to take it. See more »

Quotes

Major Paul Kreuger: So, Captain Baumann, I trust that in the event of an emergency, at least the explosives are in place to blow up the bridge?
Capt. Otto Baumann: Not yet, Herr Major. It is reported that 600 kilos of high explosives are on the way. But perhaps, that TOO is only a rumor.

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.
