Please someone else feel free to post the next question as I won't be online for the next few days to confirm the answer or give further clues. I don't want to hold things up for everyone.

Best regards.

In a FAMOUS war movie there is a tank battle scene in wich a stunt is knocked by a "panzer" and falls under it(however,the man was not injured).
The name of the movie? :D

Thank you arcano.

Because of the Cold War, a full-scale 60 acre replica of this city was built on the Plains outside of Madrid. Extras for the movie were also flown in from all over Europe to act as citizens. What movie am I refering to??

Regards,

Chris

Yes. Filmed on the Nevada Atomic Test Range, over 50 tons of radioactive dirt was transported back to the studio for filming. 97 out of 200 from the cast and crew, including most of the stars, developed cancers of various kinds, well above the normal average. Over to our friend from Pa.
