Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia John Sturges was opposed to the casting of John Wayne in the title role, due to the actor's age. During filming Sturges complained that Wayne could not run, and could only walk short distances without needing oxygen. Wayne had been working on one lung since The Sons of Katie Elder (1965).

Goofs McQ uses an Ingram MAC-10 9mm machine pistol, which fires approximately 20 rounds per second. When firing the MAC-10 in the car, on the beach, no empty cartridges are ejected from the gun. Emptying a full 30 round magazine would have sprayed casings all over the car. See more »
Movie Connections Edited into La classe américaine (1993). See more »
Quotes [McQ has just test-fired a MAC-10 submachine gun, and is putting it inside his leather bag. Jack, the gun shop owner reacts to this]
Jack: You're not going to take it, are you?
McQ: Just say it's a loan.
Jack: Lon, it's not licensed!
McQ: Jack, neither am I.
