Catch-22 (1970)

Ending / spoiler

(3 votes)

Yossarian is stabbed by Natley's girlfriend. While in surgery, he remembers when Snowden was killed. Major Danby informs Yossarian he can go home if he sells out and becomes a stooge of Colonel Cathcart. After finding out from Danby and the chaplain that his friend Orr did not die in an ocean plane crash, but had purposely paddled his raft to Sweden, Yossarian runs from the hospital, and runs to the ocean.


Revealing mistake: During the Flak attack on the B25s Arfy notices Orr's plane going down. The scene cuts to a smoking plane going down at a steep angle, but you can see the plane was flying straight and the film turned at an angle as the colors on the horizon are also at a steep angle.
