In the old(1960s) ABC Tv WWII drama "Combat" SGT Saunders is wounded, & suffers from amnesia. He is seperated from his platoon. For one whole scene all you see is him with his "burp gun" staggering repeating these words..
"Sargent..Saunders...three...sixty first" over and over again.
didn't one of those guys from Combat die last week, the one with the grizzly face?
I'm surprised no one put in Thin red Line. When the marines were charging through that Japanese camp.
The Thin Red Line is based on Author James Jones' experience in the 25th Infantry Division, US Army. I'm pretty sure throughout the book there is no talk of Marines, however it's taken me three years to finish it and I'm still not done.
In the 1990 Memphis Belle film, I liked watching the intense scene about the B-17 going through the bomb run. They were running through all those enemy fighters and flak. When they overshot their target, they had to go around and try again while going through the flak!
In Downfall, the more recent film, I was moved about how the children Hitler Youths were so ardent in the cause that they fought tooth and nail against the Russians. Only the little boy realized that fighting against an oncoming army wouldn't work. I also didn't like seeing those children commit suicide just because they wanted to die as Nazis. It was a good portrayal of how everyone was very involved in fighting for something they believed in.
The Last of the Mohicans (newest) was brilliant. The Mohawks were (and are) as fierce of a warrior as could be. But to be honest, all the movies and clips are exceptional. But movies are movies - entertainment..
