    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The original script envisioned this men-on-a-mission story like 'Guns of Navarone' or 'The Dirty Dozen,' with 12 people instead of 120, ... But the actual events were pretty spectacular, so we told Miramax, 'You've got an amazing piece of material here; we should try to tell it as accurately as possible.'”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Dale single-handedly chang-ed the way Hollywood makes movies about the military, ... He gives the actors a real sense of obligation about what they're doing. At night he'd play '40s music and talk about some of the history leading up to the war in Japan so he could bring these guys into this frame of thinking.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Infantry boot camp was so effective that Dye organized POW simulation exercises as well.] We made all the actors take their shoes off, put 'em around their neck and walk 2 miles to the camp, ... In the camp, the actors would only speak Japanese to them -- no English at all -- because we wanted the actors to understand that feeling where you've got somebody screaming at you in Japanese, which I think would be terrifying.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“He's good-looking, he's got a great charismatic presence, and he's a very good actor. He hasn't always had the material or opportunity to show just how good. In a lot of ways, he's very underrated. When he came aboard, he went all the way.”
