Excellent Story!
27 November 2004 | by snedglowSee all my reviews

I was in this movie as an extra and it was a blast to be a part of it. I was stationed at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station in 1983 as Marine Security and my entire platoon responded to an ad placed by MGM in the local paper. The CO of the barracks decided he wanted some of his Marines present to promote good public relations and we were the chosen!

I played a British Officer the first day of filming (only because the wardrobe dept. accidentally gave me an officer uniform) and an American mounted officer the second day.

I was Gen. Lafayette's (Phil Casnoff) flank officer and in one scene rode almost directly behind him and Barry Bostwick.

We were paid $75.00 for the two days of filming and I had a terrific time being a part of it!
