  1. The first major Hollywood studio film to drop the F-bomb. The side-splitting humor that counterpoints the seriousness of the Korean War culminates with a football game that is as non sequitur as any other part of the movie, only this section is where some of its most quotable dialogue can be found, especially from Hotlips O’Houlihan who clearly has no understanding of the rules of the game. Just a marvelous sequence.
