Mark, sorry...

Religion plays a supporting, and also tragic role in the film, a sniper rifle also...
Not a single funny scene in the movie, serious stuff, typical for these years.

Do not concentrate on the "hooded" jacket...

Have not seen this one,or cannot recall anyhow..


I've been watching some really bad so called true documentaries on various WW2 events on some so called expert historians You Tube channels. These are bad in actual facts and actual what happened, and these guys say they are expert historians.

Jaja, this is the reason for a new riddle... 8-)

Like always, the solution is just around the corner, at least here in Europe...

Herr von thoma was right! :milwink:

The photo was Mickey Rourke as "Martin Fallon" in the 1987 GB/US movie "A Prayer for the Dying".
IRA/Thriller movie...

Short question about the american tank "A4" with the (short?) "barrel" in the post # 3337, some kind of a grenade laucher,
or just a mistake in the movie..? 8O

Thanks!

The tank in the movie is not a sherman but a Landing Vehicle Tracked 4(AMTRACK) which was armed with a 75 MM howitzer.
