    Got to go with THE LONGEST DAY, name any other movie with as many big name actors in it. When I was young and it was at a theater in my town I bet I saw it over 20 times that month. I was probably about 8 or 9

    Porkchop hill was a favorite when I was young ....what an ending.......sheez I thought they were going to die in the bunker. Someone had to save the day.


    PT 109...... what can you say but great movie

    Saving Private Ryan......well that will shut up a lot of guys saying they wish they woulkd have been there.

    BATTLE CRY, 1955, with Van Heflin, Aldo Ray, James Whitmore, Tab Hunter, Fess Parker, Ann Frances...great cast, great movie...Marines from boot camp to island assult.

    In one scene, a Marine in a large crowd of jeering Marines gives the finger. Guess it got by the editors.

    I almost forgot...THE GREEN BERETS, 1968. I know a lot of people hate this movie, but even with its flaws, I still enjoy it.

    The very last scene of the movie is my favorite. Copters are landing on the beach, while the little Vietnamese boy is running from copter to copter looking for his friend Sgt Petersen. John Wayne walks over to the boy and puts his arm on his shoulder, and gives him the bad news. As the little boy wipes away tears, John Wayne says: "you're what this war is all about," while the music to the Ballad of the Green Berets plays in the background.

    Corny propaganda, but I still like it.

    It was WWII and they were on a ship and they got lost or something and ended up in a different world somewhere.

    Now its possible that I may have had to many beers when I saw it, but I think that is how it went, anyone remember it?
    You sure you ain't talkin about Kirk Douglass in the movie Final Countdown?
    May have been, I remember them looking for oil and setting up a refinery to try and get out of the place.

    No question..."Mr. Roberts" followed closely by "Stalag 13".
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    A bit off topic, but for a cold war movie I like "Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb".

    With Peter Sellers, Slim Pickins, what a great satire.


    A/c don: The scene where the army convoy is arriving at the air base and comes under fire is absolutely one of the best and accurately displays combat. It bothers me every time I watch the movie. You are correct it is a great movie.
