- Adaptation Displacement: Even Daniel Ford's own website mentions upfront that Incident at Muc Wa is best-known as the source of this film. The book only sold a handful of copies in 1967.
- Retroactive Recognition: Jonathan Goldsmith, future star of the Dos Equis "Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials, plays Sgt. Oleonowski, though, being younger and clean-shaven, he's not immediately recognizable.
YMMV / Go Tell the Spartans
