Errors and ExplanationsEdit

Internet Movie DatabaseEdit

Incorrectly regarded as goofsEdit

  • The Fort Baxter radio station's call sign is allowed to start with a W, even though Kansas is west of the Mississippi, because the boundary line was once farther west and stations did not have to be renamed when it was moved. WIBW and WREN are real-life stations in Topeka, Kansas.[2]

Movie MistakesEdit


  • When the two people Major Thorn brings in to do inventory are counting crates, and the platoon has mirrors up to look like more crates are really there, wouldn't they see themselves in the mirrors? Bilko won't allow the investigators to walk down the aisle of crates, so they never get close enough to see themselves.[3]
