In the first dog-feeding scene, a soldier gives a dog named Hercules a bowl of food. Hercules' dog house has a sign that says "Hercules" on it. In a following scene, Smythe gives Hercules a dog treat, and he's in a different dog house, without the name sign. In the rest of the shots, he's in the original dog house with the name sign.

Danny Stauffer: [Sternly to Chips, as he was eyeing a canary, of a lady, carrying a canary, bus was coming in to the bus route, but quietly to others, on bus] Don't even think about it!
[Chips turns his head, from looking at the canary, back to Danny Stauffer after heaing his command & it is the movie's final verbal remark, then the Closing Credits begin]

A must see, have the kleenex handy
11 April 2002 | by (Minnesota, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is very under-rated. A fictional film based on historical events, it shines as a comedy, drama, and tear-jerker. It focuses on one dog during W.W. 2, but speaks volumes of how all the dogs were treated after their service in the war. The dogs were striped of the medals they so richly earned! It doesn't just use German Shepherds either, it uses a variety of breeds, each suited to a unique talent, just like they did in real life.

I would recommend this film to anyone, even those who think they wouldn't like it -- its great and should have been recognized by one of the award groups but it was not (kind of fitting in a way).
