Picture 1 - Per Dodger: Photo 1 has another tank turret in the picture but the background shows a
large Eucalyptus tree, my guess is it is in Southern California, most likely at MGMs backlot.
Picture 5 - Per Dodger: I believe photos #5 and #6 are from the opening scenes of "The Gantlet". The back of the truck was loaded with wounded soldiers when they were ambushed
and Saunders was captured. The scenes were filmed up the road from the
Bronson Canyon quarry.
Per Filly: Sorry, Dodger, but
I gotta disagree with 5 and 6. If you watch the
episode The Long Wait right around the "Directed By Edward Lakso," you
will see them pan across the truck. It seems to me that is the ep.
The guy on the right has his head bandaged, the guy on the floor with
his head toward the camera is correct, and in the background above
the guy on the floor, you can make out the guy with white showing
around his head and at his neck. In the ep The Long Wait, that would
be accurate with the show...the guy on the left was bandaged across
the head and down to his neck. Also, in Gantlet, the truck had one
wounded man with Saunders, and the rest were healthy. No one is
bandaged. Sorry, but it just ain't Gantlet.
Per Lynn Tremblay: And I have
to repeat that the pic no. 5, on the first page, is from LONG WAIT. With the
clearer image, I'm absolutely positive that the man sitting in the truck next
to the "wounded man" is Conlan Carter. Conlan wasn't in GANTLET. So,
I'm positive that this pic is taken from LONG WAIT.
