Lieutenant Bernard O'Hare, when he captures Campbell, is not wearing the regulation M1 helmet of WW2 vintage, nor are the two U.S. soldiers who drive Campbell away from the concentration camp. Rather, they appear to be wearing the British paratrooper type-3 helmet, which, interestingly, was adopted by the Israeli Defense Forces in the late 1940's and '50's. See more »
The folk who produced this masterful film have done fine service to a novel that stands as perhaps the best fiction work centering upon human guilt and human responsibility ever published. Nolte takes the role of Howard W. Campbell, Jr., and makes it his own, remaining true to Vonnegut's depiction of a man who has lost ALL (to and) for Love.
No weaknesses in this fine adaptation.
