No date is provided for when the movie takes place, though according to several facts mentioned a guess can be made: (1) In the opening scenes, Big Joe (Telly Savalas) and his men are trying to get into the city of Nancy, France, so they can get some well-earned rest, but the Germans were still holding the city. Historically the city of Nancy was captured on the 15th of September, 1944, by the US Third Army. (2) Capt. Maitland (Hal Buckley) mentions he has to go to Paris to pick up a few things for the general. Paris was liberated on the 25th of August 1944. See more »
The 50cal MG on the half-track changes throughout the film. It's shown at some points to have a perforated barrel jacket (like on an M1919A4 30Cal), and then at other times seen to have a normal barrel See more »
This movie is simply great. The guy who wrote the other review is flat wrong. He contests that anyone no from the era won't like it. I was born in 1982, and it's in my top 5. It has one of the best casts around, with Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Don Rickles, Donald Sutherland, and Carroll O' Connor. It has action and humor, what more could you want. It is a great film, hands down. Do yourself a favor and view its splendor. The Mike Curb song is great and catchy, the editing is on par with any other movie, and the plot, although improbable, is entertaining. All told, it gets a 9.5/10.
