The shot of the aircraft carrier coming into San Francisco Bay at the beginning of the movie was completely unplanned. The entire crew were, at the time, on the Presidio's parade field, along with hundreds of off-duty soldiers, filming a staged parade. When Director Peter Hyams saw the fleet coming in, he stopped filming of the parade, to get a shot of the ships going past. In the final cut of the movie, only a few seconds of the parade are shown at the beginning, and the rest of the day's shoot was left on the cutting room floor. See more »
When outside, Lt. Col. Caldwell does not render salute to the Medal of Honor recipient. It is customary in any instances to render salute and very disrespectful not to render, no matter how much you know the person. See more »
This movie is VERY underated. I think the chemistry between Mark Harmon and Sean Connery is great. They play off of each other very well. I'll have to see if they're in anything else together. Meg Ryan plays a kind of slutty girl at the start and never does become the wholesome type that people are always saying she plays. Jack Warden is also good in this one.
