Combat! (1962)

3 mistakes in Mountain Man

(3 votes)

Mountain Man - S3-E1

Factual error: Combat is set in Northern France, where there are no snow-capped mountains. Yet Saunders' troops are crossing such terrain here. It's also apparent that, despite dialogue referring to sub-zero temperatures, it isn't really very cold. The actors are sweating in their snow gear, there's no frost on them, and no one's breath is forming any clouds in the air.

Revealing mistake: When Saunders and his men escape from the Germans, it's supposed to be after sundown. But the entire chase scene that follows is filmed in broad daylight. (00:19:20)

Trivia: Actor Vic Morrow used a non-firing wooden replica of a Tompson submachine gun due to its lighter weight, thus being easier to carry. He used a heavier blank-firing model when it was required to be fired.
