Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film, young men headed to basic training in Biloxi, Mississippi are shown on a train crossing a river. The name of the train is visible and easy to read. At the end of the film, the men are leaving Mississippi. The scene shows the train crossing the same river, but the name of the train is backwards. The director must have wanted to save money, and reversed the film for a mirror image.

Arnold Epstein: Once you start compromising your thoughts, you're a candidate for mediocrity.
Eugene Morris Jerome: Man it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot.
