Did You Know?


Lee Marvin (Ben Rumson) drank real alcohol throughout the production, even though the director fought him about it. In most pictures the actors drink tea for whiskey and water for vodka. Marvin would only work if he got real liquor.


Rumson: I'm an ex-citizen of nowhere, and sometimes I get mighty homesick.


When the town falls apart due to the tunnels collapsing, the smooth sides of the concrete tunnel are visible after the thin layer of mud falls down into them.
