Charlton Heston apparently took the lead role so that MGM would allow him to use footage from " Ben Hur " for his directorial debut, " Antony and Cleopatra " . See more »
The aircraft they exit from at the end of the film is a cargo aircraft. The aircraft is a Boeing 707-300C, which contains a large cargo door on the left side. The aircraft serves a dual purpose and can be converted to cargo use from a passenger aircraft. See more »
I was really surprised by this film, one, I had never actually seen it, and two, it was well worth seeing.
I did, however, find it very frustrating. Not through the plot or the acting or anything like that, but it was full of actors and actresses, whose faces were familiar to me, I spent about half the film wondering who had been in what, I couldnt wait to get on here and find out.
Charlton Heston was his always accomplished self, no more and no less, and he is always very good. James Brolin played a military section 8 well indeed, or at least I assume that is a way in which a section 8 would be, not like Klinger in M*A*S*H!
All together a very good film, well worth watching, and in truth probably suffered unfairly against the films of the day, The Godfather and The French Connection to name but two.
Not necessarily one for the collection, but worth seeing all the same.
