Goofs

There were several instances of misuse of military unit names. A regiment is an organization of several battalions. A sergeant would not have the authority to organize one. A squadron is a battalion-sized unit in cavalry organizations. It would be too large for this type of operation. A platoon would be more appropriate. This would be the smallest unit commanded by a commissioned officer. See more »

Quotes

Sgt. Thomas Mulcahey: Indians riding Cavalry mounts? My grandaddy'd never forgive me!
Sgt. James Shattuck: Well, when you get to hell... don't tell him.

Besides being an enjoyment for anyone who likes horses, this movie also covers shameful incidents from out nation's history. It identifies several issues that warrant further investigation by anyone interested in U.S. history. These include the rise of General McArthur, the treatment of returning W.W. I Veterans,the difficulty of changing the way war is fought.(an issue today)and the influence of the press.. All of this might shed some light on how decisions are made today by men in power. Excellent acting by some actors who are sometimes not praised enough for their craft. Personally, I would accept more movies of this genre.
