In fact, a translation of what he said when captured at the end proves it:


"It's Upham. He won't do us any harm."

I don’t think that’s really much of a debate. The big misconception people get is that Steamboat Willie kills the Jewish soldier with the knife to the heart.

Of course he did, I realized that the first time I saw it. I was waiting for the shoe to drop after Upham insisted tehy let him go.

Actually, no. OLY-M4Gery claimed an SS guy killed Hanks' character in another thread. I felt the need for a correction.

1) Steamboat Willie was Wermarcht
2) The SS soldier, was well SS
3) In the fight between the SS soldier and Mellish, Mellish calls out to Upham by name to come help him. Upham stands there frozen as Mellish is killed.
4) The SS soldier knows Upham's name because Mellish called out to him.
5) Since Upham stood by while Mellish is killed, the SS soldier didn't feel that Upham "had what it took" to be a soldier.

Wrong.

Wade-killer, Miller-killer, and Upham-killed are the same guy. Knife-killer dude is different.

Is that right?
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:10:18 AM EDT
Yes, a different German killed Mellish, but it was Steamboat Willie that killed Capt. Miller...and then Upham shot Willie.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:10:18 AM EDT
Willie had the same knife that was used in Heat.

Well, its not clear that Steamboat killed Wade....BUT he was a soldier in the position that Wade got killed at. Steamboat Willie killed Miller, that faggot pussy Upham killed Steamboat with that steely killer look in his eye...(yeah, right)

Willie was NOT the SS soldier. He was Wehrmacht.

It was NOT the SS soldier who killed Hanks or was killed by Upham. It was Steamboat Willie.

OooooOOOOOooooo!

First up, that's what we in the industry call a "joke". And for the denser among us, I even put a smiley in there to indicate it was, in fact, a joke.

Second up, it was irony because someone put "Spoiler alert" on the 2001: A Space Odyssey thread and that movie is almost 40 years old!

Gimme a break indeed!

Off-topic, where did the "Steamboat Willie" name for the Wehrmacht dude come from?

Is that something that someone called him in the movie, or just a name that has emerged over time among fans?

The German soldier, who is not named, refers to "Steamboat Willie" when first captured and is digging a grave for the squad.

"Steamboat Willie! Toot! Toot!"

If you intend to use a smilie to convey a joke... don't use one that looks angry. Try one of these

not

It makes a big difference in getting your point across acuratly.

FWIW that's a "wink, wink smile" smiley. Methinks you need Smiley Training. <---- no mistaking that one.

I awarded myself Extra Credit Irony for that post too: If you know SPR enough to know who Steamboat Willie is you've probably seen it more than a few times.

OK OK sorry for hijacking the thread Wobblin-Goblin. I'm outta here.

Were the bent bolt handles on those Mausers accurate? I'm no expert, but I thought the bolt handles were straight on original Mausers.

(And before anybody jumps on the double meaning, I am NOT asking if you can hit targets reliably with the handles)

Straight bolt is the WWI G98 Mauser

Bent bolt is the WWII K98 Mauser (carbine).

The K98 is slightly shorter and very accurate.
