When marine Bobby Danzig first speaks to Jeannie, he is wearing the insignia of a private first class (one chevron), but is wearing a red "blood stripe" on his dress blue trousers; this stripe is designated for non-commissioned officers, which a PFC is not (the Private First Class should be wearing plain blue trousers).

Opening credits are shown over old, black and white photos.
