Trivia

Excluding the opening scene where he appears as an unidentified elderly man, title character Private Ryan (Matt Damon) is first introduced at 1 hour and 46 minutes, and has only 59 minutes of screen time.


Quotes

Ryan's son: Dad?
LCVP pilot: CLEAR THE RAMP! THIRTY SECONDS! GOD BE WITH YA!


Goofs

In the scene where Jackson is firing from the bell tower, he fires 8 shots. The standard Springfield sniper rifle could only hold a maximum of 5 rounds. Jackson never reloads, and if he did, he would have had to take quite a bit of time as each round had to be inserted one at a time, due to the scope being in the way, the rounds could not be inserted using a stripper clip.


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits after the title is shown.


Alternate Versions

Differences between theatrical version vs. DVD

  • on the beach in Normandy Tom Hanks orders his men to take out the sniper that has them pinned down. Soldier after soldier die as they go around the corner while they have covering fire. There is a scene that was cut where he is telling a soldier (after soldier baulks) that they will both go out together. Tom counts down and fakes going out and the other soldier goes out and is gunned down.
  • Scene where they let the two German soldiers walk away - DVD version does not show them shot in the back as they are down the road.
