When Anita Márquez filled Che's mate bowl, he passed it to her without the bombilla, the metal straw; he then stirred the mate and took a drink. It's not done that way: the bombilla stays in the leaves at all times (no stirring). See more »
[Che is falling behind on a march]
Stragglers are sure to die, don't you know that?
I'm not a straggler, I'm your rear guard.
No you're not, you're the company doctor. See what you can do for the men with blistered feet. You've got ten minutes.

If you're looking for an accurate portrayal of Che Guevara, the Cuban revolutionary who helped aid Fidel Castro in his bid for power, you'd better read up on Cuban history or even type in his name on a search engine (you ARE on the Internet, after all).
But whatever you do, DO NOT WATCH "CHE!".
Unless, of course, you just want a good laugh.
All the reviewers of the time (and moviegoers) gave "Che!" their vote for worst film of the decade. And no wonder; have you seen this travesty? Its facts are tenuous at best, Sharif is even unconvincing as a corpse and as for Palance's Fidel Catsro imitation....
Like I said, if you want a good laugh.
It's like watching a co-production between The Learning Channel and Mad Magazine.
I wonder if Palance can do W. C. Fields, too?
