Parachute scene is obviously a different plane than the DC-3: Look for black strip around top of door on jump plane but all white above DC-3 door. Parachute plane has shiny side, DC-3 has dull side. Also look for pilot to be at the controls on final take-off, then back in the cabin celebrating, then gone from celebration in next scene. Highly unlikely that pilot would leave cockpit as they had just taken off and were banking. Pilot easily identified because he wears shark teeth necklace though he alternates between tank-top and flight suit. See more »

This is a great movie for 30-40-50-somethings and anyone who remembers Borgnine, Coburn and Quinn (probably won't appeal to the youngest generation - they won't get it). Great performances from James Brolin, Bruce Davidson, Cleavon Little, Chick Vennera and Lindsay Wagner. Cameo appearances from Ernest Borgnine , James Coburn and Anthony Quinn. Pretty much non-stop, roller-coater action from the get-go and it just keeps building up until the very end. Best of all is the ending. I won't spoil it, but you don't often get a drama/action movie with a such a happy ending. And that final quirk!? Watch it - highly recommended! Be warned, however, that the DVD transfer is absolutely awful.
