Russell Means was just fantastic in The Last of the Mohicans. Saw it in a theater and when he took out Magua (Wes Studi) near the end of the movie I cheered enthusiastically. Great movie!I love many military-themed movies.
Favorite foreign military films: Black Book, Das Boot, and Downfall.
Favorite Navy themed: Master and Commander, Midway, and Run Silent Run Deep.
Favorite POW: King Rat, The Bridge on the River Kwai, and Empire of the Sun.
Favorite Historical Military Fiction: Kingdom of Heaven, The Eagle, and The Last of the Mohicans.
Favorite Military Comedies: Mrs Henderson Presents, Down Periscope, and Charlie Wilson's War (the Tom Hanks version).
Favorite Anti-Nuke: Dr. Strangelove, Fail-Safe, and By Dawn's Early Light.
I could put so many honorable mentions in the above lists.
I remember going to see that at the local drive-in. (Shows how long ago that was. It's long gone now.) I was intrigued because it "starred" Kirk Douglas. Come to find out, he has about 2-3 minutes of screen time, and the rest was taken up with B & C actors. Something they do quite a bit today with straight to video movies.The Final Countdown
