When Kipsang is being buried, the soldiers are ordered to reverse their rifles (pointing down to the ground as a sign of respect). However when the coffin is being lowered into the ground the soldiers' rifles are resting in their shoulders in the usual position. No order was given to change the position of the rifles and probably would not have been given until after the coffin was lowered. See more »
"Sundown" (1941): Starring Bruce Cabot, George Sanders, and here's why I like this movie in the "guilty pleasure" category: it also stars Gene Tierney, the most beautiful woman of the 1940's. (THEN come Dorothy Lamour, Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake, and others ) The video box reads: "A jungle woman " (Tierney): well, there is NO JUNGLE or JUNGLE WOMAN in this movie, " helps the British in defeating the attempts of the Nazis " (there are NO Nazis in this movie), " to take over and occupy the jungle!" (There is NO JUNGLE!). So, OTHER THAN THAT load of crap, there IS a DESERT, there is WWII for the British (not the U.S. yet), and there IS Pinup-olicious Gene Tierney. Another odd piece of junk is that "the main bad guy" is Dutch. IF you know anything about that war, the Dutch were Allies, folks, ALLIES. You know, hiding Ann Frank, etc.? Some of the photography is good, acting is average at best (and awful at times watch the actor's eyes (who plays the "bad guy") as he reads his lines left to right, left to right, left to right. Whatta shmo. If you've ever wondered what Gene Tierney's belly button looked like, THIS is your chance. She also has a nice, statuesque walk. Guilty pleasures arise and be proud!
