Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): 2nd Lt. Geoghegan's wife receives a telegram, delivered by Mrs. Moore, notifying her of her husband's death the same night that he is found and while his body is still lying on the battlefield.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The U-Haul trailer being pulled by the station wagon in the beginning of the movie is a 1980's or newer U-Haul paint scheme.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Whilst the F-100D Super Sabre was used extensively in the Vietnam War, it was a USAF aircraft and never operated from a carrier as is depicted in the film.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In the scene when the American soldier in the cut-off platoon gets hit with a Phosphorous Grenade you can see that his M16 has a chrome plated bolt. The chrome plated bolt was not introduced until roughly 1967, close to 2 years after the battle of the Ia Drang.
