I was in 7th grade art class the Monday after it came out and one of my pals comes in and lays out the whole movie to me perfectly. I knew right then it was a masterpiece. lol
I saw this a while back:
"Five of the 36 parachutists who took part in the invasion scene early in the film were injured when high winds blew them as far as one mile off target. Parachutist Jim Fisher, wearing a Soviet paratrooper uniform including full Soviet insignia and including an AKM Assault Rifle, landed in a tree and found himself calling out to local rescuers including armed citizens and police: ďDonít shoot, donít shoot! I am not a Russian soldier!"
