Gen. Mike Randolph:
Did you find anything to drink around here?
Gen. Mike Randolph: I don't mean water.
Col. David 'Mickey' Marcus: I don't mean water.
When Colonel Marcus first meets General Randolph, there is a Curtiss C-46 in the background. The blue in insignia markings is too pale and the plane lacks the black and white "Invasion Stripes" that were painted on the fuselage and wings of all aircraft involved in the Normandy Invasion. Also, the paratroop drop at Normandy occurred at night, not broad daylight as depicted in the movie.
