I've always like the movie because it used real Tiger tanks, real Thompsons, and most of the uniform/gear details were correct. Plus, it had "Oddball".

We see our role as essentially defensive in nature. While our armies are advancing so fast and everyone's knocking themselves out to be heroes, we are holding ourselves in reserve in case the Krauts mount a counteroffensive which threatens Paris... or maybe even New York. Then we can move in and stop them.

On behalf of Canada, I would like to apologize for the rest of Donald Sutherlands career (excepting The Dirty Dozen) however, we will take credit for talent he brought to the role of a 1944 hippie G.I..

Fun flick but Sutherland's character was too 60's hippy for me.

That said, it was better than most of the crap Hollywood is pinching off at us these days.

Donald Sutherland has had plenty of good roles and is a great actor. Unfortunatly he is a liberal asshat like a 99.9 % of Hollywood and 64% of Canada.

They were not real Tigers, they were made up to look like Tigers but were based on Russian T-34 chassis, just look at the road wheels. I do appreciate the fact that they tried to make real looking German tanks instead of sticking an Iron Cross on a Sherman like most WW II films.

That movie had star power. Maybe they were not all stars at the time, but it's a who's who of seventies stars.

You'll never see a move like that these days.

On second thought Saving Pvt. Ryan had quite a bit of star power too...

The scene where Oddball's tanks roll into the railyard shooting the hell out of the place to Hank Williams Sr. is a classic.

Bingo.

Bovington used to have their real Tiger next to the mockup one one from Private Ryan. Side-by-side, the mock-up was tiny.

Other 'good tries' were in Band of Brothers, and Courage Under Fire. The fact that they dubbed turbine noises in place of diesels threw me on that one, even though there was obviously something 'wrong' with the Abrams.

I thought Carrol O'Conner was the best character in that movie....he was a friggin nut.

"Do ya hear that?That's the kinda team spirit I'm talkin about,they even got the damn grave diggers in there."

That was Hank Jr. "All for the love of sunshine"



Then it wouldn't be period accurate, because I am not sure Jr. was alive in 1944, much less singing.

The Abrams in Courage under Fire were mocked up British Challenger Tanks. Those scenes were filmed in El Paso, Texas. The US government wouldn't let them use real Abrams because it was a movie about Friendly Fire and made the government look bad.

Both Kellys heros and SPR used mocked up T-34's. I've seen one and they are smaller than a real Tiger Tank.

Kelly's Hero's is in my top ten movies and I might be showing my age, but I saw it in the theatre as a new release.

Burning Bridges
Mike Curb Congregation

Burning Bridges
The Mike Curb Congregation
(Curb/Schifrin)

Friends all tried to warn me
But I held my head up high
All the time they warned me
But I only passed them by
They all tried to tell me
But I guess I didn't care
I turned my back and
Left them standing there

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Joey tried to help me find a job
A while ago
When I finally got it I didn't want to go
The party Mary gave for me
When I just walked away
Now there's nothing left for me to say

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Years have passed and I keep thinking
What a fool I've been
I look back into the past and
Think of way back then
I know that I lost everything I thought I that could win
I guess I should have listened to my friends

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore
