Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Petty officer Badley's white uniform is post war. You can see two slits for the pockets. Pre-war dress whites had such pockets, but with a blue yoke and cuffs. Postwar dress white uniforms have them as well. During WWII, a simple patch pocket of the Undress White uniform was used, dress whites being discontinued for the duration.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): There are several scenes in the movie where there are continuity problems with the helmet chin straps. For example, near the beginning of the movie, when Doc and Iggy are in the shell crater from which Iggy disappears, Doc's chin strap is tight, then loose. Similarly, when Ira Hayes comes out of his tent at the training camp, his chin strap is fastened, then unfastened. There are other examples.
  • David Patrick Kelly plays President 'Harry S Truman'. Kelly also played a supporting role on Twin Peaks, where Michael Ontkean plays the town sheriff, whose name is also Harry S Truman.
  • The original of the top photograph in the stack of Japanese atrocities is held in the Australian War Memorial. It is dated 24 October 1943, was taken in Aitape, New Guinea, and shows Sergeant Leonard G. Siffleet, about to be beheaded with a sword by Yasuno Chikao.
