Trivia / Born on the Fourth of July

  • The Merch: Deconstructed, as the film ended up inspiring unofficial merchandise in the form of "Ron Kovic" Halloween costumes and an unofficial (in terms of not getting the license for the actor's appearance) adult collectible 1/6th scale action figure of Tom Berenger from the film, as Berenger has a single scene in the film where he gives a recruitment speech for the Marines in dress blues at the start of the film.
  • What Could Have Been: Charlie Sheen was the first choice to play Kovic before being replaced by Tom Cruise.
