During the flag ceremony at the Japaneses Internment Camp, the wrong bugle call is sounded. They are lowering the flag at the end of the day, and that is called a "Retreat" ceremony. The bugle call you are hearing is, "Retreat", which is the first of two bugle calls that are sounded. When "Retreat" is sounded, it lets everyone know to stop and face towards the flag. The salute isn't presented until the second bugle call, "To The Colors", begins, as the flag is being lowered. In this movie, we never actually hear the bugle call, "To The Colors". See more »
This movie was a wonderful but underrated love story
The first time I saw this film I was working as the projectionist of the multi-plex theater where it first opened in 1976. It played for two or more weeks and did good business. I must have checked my watch and looked out at the same few scenes a hundred times. The actors were so talented and the scenery so real as if it was a real 1944 town. I am 60 now and just saw it again on cable. I was about 23 or 4 when it was released. It has been hard for me to understand why Jan Michael Vincent never became a huge box office star like DeNiro or Warren Beaty. I didn't like his TV series "Airwolf" He was so talented but his feature-length movies just were swept under the rug so to speak. I guess some make it while some don't. If you see this playing on cable or in a DVD discount bin watch it un-cut by commercials. Have some tissues nearby.
