George C. Scott,

When 1st Lt. Milo Minderbinder and Col. Cathcart walk along the landing strip, they pass a crashed B-25. It may seem wrong that the airplane has no turret and no hole where the turret would have been; but this is because it's supposed to be the (other) bomber which moments before had trailed smoke as it flew past the two officers and landed badly on one wheel, then crashed in an explosion which is heard but not seen. However, the filmed illusion does not work properly since the stunt plane kept on making the smoke trail which extends far beyond the "crashed" plane. See more »
I am in love with this book, so when I saw that there was a movie I flipped out and ordered it right away... and it was fantastic. I love the actors and I love how Nichols directed it. However, I was disappointed of the changes they made, where's Dunbar? He was like my 2nd favorite character. He was Yo-yo's best friend.... Also, they said it was Hungry Joe who was cut in half by McWatt, but it was really Kid Sampson, I could see how they didn't want to have too many characters to keep up with (in the book I felt like that was true) but still, Hungry Joe was...amazing, he was hilarious. Also, I'm not sure if I liked how Nately died, opposed to the books version. I suppose it made more since to kill him off when Milo's deal (the bombing thing), but it was when he died in combat mission that really broke Yossarian. I think Jon Voight did an fantastic job of Milo, he was really how I pictured Milo, I was really excited about that. The poignant walk through Rome that Yossarian takes, was so, perfect as well. But all in all, this was an excellent portrayal of the book, I totally imagined this movie (the settings, what Yossarian looked like, everything pretty much) as I was reading the book.
