YMMV: The Wind and the Lion
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The score is by Jerry Goldsmith. 'Nuff said.
  • Fridge Logic: The Marines seize the Moroccan government to induce it to recover the Pedicaris family from the Raisuli. So how does the US end up siding with the Raisuli against the US-controlled Moroccan government? And if the Americans are dictating the course of events, why does Captain Jerome consider the Bashaw's retainers as adversaries and how did the Germans end up in the middle of the operation?
    • The Germans are being opportunistic landgrabbers, and trying to grab a foothold while things were distracted.
  • Tear Jerker
    • Raisuli says goodbye to Mrs. Pedicaris.
    • Theodore Roosevelt reads Raisuli's letter while sitting with the grizzly bear
    • Raisuli's last line: "Is there not one thing in your life that is worth losing everything for?"
