Added Production note: Even though a lot of the amphibious land scenes was stock footage Mr. Wilde did include actual landing barge footage with actual pyrotechnics' going all around us, as we hit the water. We did go down the nets into the boats. I say we, as I was one of them, along with several American military on leave from Base's around the Philippine's. Air Force, Navy, Army and Marines, who where serving over there during Viet Nam getting some R&R. Some of us who also had been in Country at one point in time supporting the troops in country. I was part of the casting crew and if you see the film some of us listed in the credits as they roll at the end. See me as Private Bill, that was me that you read about in the plot who gets killed. #BillyDunbar

I [who?] was in the US Navy stationed in the Philippines when this was filmed. Many US sailors appeared in the movie. It was the only time I ever disembarked down a cargo net from a LST into a LSVP. I wasn't there when the scenes on land were filmed. Maybe there were no US personnel in those scenes.
