At the beginning of the movie Big Joe is desperate to know about the best places to stay in the city of Nancy, and uses the Michelin Guide as a tourist guide. Use of these books by Allied troops is accurate. When planning the Normandy invasion, staff officers were concerned about how the troops would navigate in light of the possibility that retreating Germans would take down or reverse road signs. The U.S. government quietly reprinted the most recent edition (from 1939, as new publications had been suspended because of the war). So when Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normany on June 6, 1944, they carried the Michelin guides and for the remainder of the war, advancing forces depended on their Michelin maps. See more »
125 boxes of gold times $8,400 for each box equals $1,050,000 (2014 money - $13,897,916.67), which is not the $10,500,000 mentioned in the film by Fisher who is verifying Crapgame's calculations. This would give each of them a share worth $87,500 (2014 money - $1,158,159.72) each, not $875,000 as calculated by Fisher. See more »
What is this? Huh1? What is this, a ballgame? Who are these guys?
They're my friends, Crapgame.
And who is that bunch of refugees over there?
The band? What do we need a band for?
Have a little faith, Crapgame... they're beautiful people!

An older video release has a very quick scene involving Germans trying to jump over a truck (after the group crosses the minefield). This scene isn't in the 1999 video; however, a scene with one of the American machine gun crews right after the deleted scene is inserted. See more »
This movie is simply great. The guy who wrote the other review is flat wrong. He contests that anyone no from the era won't like it. I was born in 1982, and it's in my top 5. It has one of the best casts around, with Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Don Rickles, Donald Sutherland, and Carroll O' Connor. It has action and humor, what more could you want. It is a great film, hands down. Do yourself a favor and view its splendor. The Mike Curb song is great and catchy, the editing is on par with any other movie, and the plot, although improbable, is entertaining. All told, it gets a 9.5/10.
