I had a couple of scenes in this movie as an extra. I played a photographer in the awards ceremony scene and was one of the airmen chasing after the jeep. It was a great time and Vic Tayback and Lloyd Bridges we really friendly and open. Chris Lemon, not so much. The story wasn't fantastic but Burt Convey kept to a simple premise. Just have fun with it!" IN the end, we did and I think the vibe came across in the final product. The movie is just plain old fun. If you're looking for a good "Popcorn" flick and you don't care if it's "Higher Art", well, then this movie will fit the bill. I am proud to say I had a part in it and the experience was a blast!
