Goofs

On the campaign ("Smokey the Bear") hat, US Army officers did not wear the large US Coat of Arms insignia that was worn on the visored garrison cap. The black and gold acorn cord was sufficient indication that the wearer was an officer. See more »

A great Film-Almost restores your faith in Human Beings!
9 August 2002 | by (Fayetteville, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film completely by chance as I was shoveling my Dad's driveway the winter of 1996. I had turned on the TV in between breaks and went to HBO and it had just started and it was so well done that I watched the whole movie before I went beck out to keep on shoveling the snow. If the film's portrayal of MacArthur was true, he was a real Turd! And the treatment of the World War I veterans by our government shows that nothing much has changed over the past 80 years! But the film itself is a gem! If you love a movie with a corny old good guys vs. bad guys plot that will leave you feeling great at the end, and if you love animals, especially horses, you'll love this film. I have the video and will get the DVD as soon as they nake that - it's that good!!!
