The squad are attacked by an enemy plane and Pvt Slade is supposedly fatally wounded, but as he lays on the dirt you can see he is still breathing and his eye lids flutter. Nevertheless, Pvt Russo rushes over and lays on top of Pvt Slade, feeling for a pulse and declares "He's had it" and then proceeds to tear off the dog tag. See more »

One of those vague drive-in treats from the past.

They just don't make movies like this anymore. Very entertaining and realistic. It always seemed that these old films were always technically accurate even though their budget had to be minuscule. Maybe it was because the cast and crew had all served in the military during WWII and it wasn't necessary to do a lot of research on equipment, events, etc. Appealing in its own way just as "Saving Private Ryan" is another. Would love to see again.
