Quotes of The Hill

Regimental Sergeant Major Bert Wilson: Then there's the Commandant. The Commandant signs bits of paper. He'd sign his own death warrant if I gave it to him.

Regimental Sergeant Major Bert Wilson: New scum and old scum are bad mixes.

Trooper Joe Roberts: We're all doing time. Even the screws.

Trooper Joe Roberts: So what's the charge? Failing to obey an order? Or, drunk in charge of a cigarette lighter? Oh, you crazy bastard! You'd prop up dead men and inspect them if you was ordered to!
Regimental Sergeant Major Bert Wilson: Right! You're RIGHT!

Regimental Sergeant Major Bert Wilson: I'm running this place! Me! I'll say what goes and what don't go!

Trivia of The Hill

- In 'Sidney Lumet' (qv)'s autobiography "Making Movies", the director recalled suffering through the horrendous heat of the location and asking 'Sean Connery' (qv) if he was urinating at all, to which Connery's reply was "Only in the morning".

- In Robert Kahn's book, The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Cinema's Hidden Gems, and in the 3 August 2001 New York Times article, "Watching Movies With: Woody Allen," Allen said he regarded 'Sidney Lumet' (qv)'s "The Hill", along with "_The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)_ (qv)", "White Heat", "The Informer", "_Double Indemnity (1944)_ (qv)", and "_Shane (1953)_ (qv)", as being among the best American movies.

- 'Sidney Lumet' (qv) used three wide-angle lenses: a 24mm, a 21mm, and an 18mm. He deliberately wanted distortion in the faces, even the close-ups. Full Trivia >>
