2. What movie is this quote from?
“A story. A man fires a rifle for many years. And he goes to war. And afterwards he comes home, and he sees that whatever else he may do with his life—build a house, love a woman, change his son's diaper—he will always remain a jarhead. And all the jarheads killing and dying, they will always be me. We are still in the desert.”
3. What movie is this?
It is a WWII aviation picture based on the best seller and Pulitzer Prize winning novel by John Hersey. It was filmed in England and directed by Philip Leacock. Two RAF bases were used for the exterior shots. The producers found three B-17s in America. Famous aviation writer Martin Caidin helped restore them and flew one across the Atlantic to be used in the film. He wrote a book about the experience entitled Everything But the Flak. A stuntman died during a stunt when he drowned parachuting into the English Channel. Warren Beatty was first choice for the lead role but he turned it down because he had recently caused the breakup of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood. Another leading man got the part and was his usual difficult self. He did not get along with Shirley Anne Field and once pushed so hard she went over a sofa and cut her lip. In a subsequent kissing scene, she bit him on his lip in revenge. Director Leacock was lenient with star’s contractual stipulation that he avoid racing cars during the filming. He proceeded to get into an accident, so those injuries from his fight with the Bolland character are not the result of make-up.
