    2nd question.. at the end of the film he is standing at the "crossroads." Does he go back to Bettina, now that he sees that the girl in the pickup? Or does he continue to go down the road less traveled ?

    Very likely that the producers secured a product placement deal well before the first day of shooting. Hollywood movies just can't prominently show off a brand in a movie at will, which is why you see a lot of a directors create their own brands for movies where potential sponsors would be put off by the subject or material in a film.

    He needed to fall that close to the fire so they could finish the shot. Wouldn’t look as good of he fell back into the dark part of the cave.

    There were times during my first marriage where I would have killed to be stranded on that desert island for four years.

    :(

    The most painful part of that film is when he comes home and sees Helen Hunt, again. That scene guts me. What coulda been...

    I was watching Hondo earlier and asked my brother why John Wayne’s character knows nothing about gun safety. He’s always waving the muzzles of guns around even at his friends.

    I've not seen Hondo, but this is (sort of) funny:




    And the final foot-chase scene in the 1963 movie Charade* - you can see the difference between how an actor (Cary Grant) holds the gun, compared to a military veteran (Walter Mattau).

    * Can be watched in full and for free @ youtube. A copyright balls up at the time of release meant that the movie entered the public domain on release. Also stars Audrey Hepburn, James Coburn and George Kennedy. "The best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made".
