** Creator/JohnLandis plays the dust-covered soldier who delivers a message to Stilwell.
** Creator/JamesCaan can be glimpsed as one of the participants in the USO brawl.
** A deleted scene has John Milius as a man dressed as Santa, doing an impression of "Bigfoot caught in your headlights" that he often amused the rest of the crew with. After filming it they came to their senses, realizing (in those pre-Internet days) that absolutely no one besides the people who worked on the movie would get the joke.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: General Stillwell is tougher than leather, coldly competent, and takes charge of every situation...but he gets misty-eyed while watching Dumbo. Robert Stack's performance is one of the highlights of the film.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: {{Exaggerated}} with both Stretch and Maxine in different ways - Stretch's pursuing of Donna is extremely creepy and evocative of rape, while Maxine, knowing and seeing how Stretch is terrorizing Donna, declares him the 'perfect man' and spends the rest of the film chasing after him, screaming his name, and punching anyone who gets between her and 'her man'.
