We'll never know. Studio execs care about making money - not "inconsequential" things like plot and character development.
    Read "7 Pillars of Wisdom" by Lawrence. You'll never look at that movie the same way again. Hollywood took major-MAJOR liberties with his bio. Also- read an actual Ian Fleming James Bond novel. The only thing those films share with their book counterparts is their names... that's IT.

    Tinseltown's been doing whatever they wish to books and bio's for generations.

    This.




    As mentioned that movie scared the crap out of me as a kid in the '80's. Looking back it is something I remember fondly from my childhood. I have the VHS around somewhere but no player, lol.

    It's one of the things that lead to me getting into AKs, Soviet militaria and studying the Soviet and Warsaw Pact armed forces.

    If I'm ever down Las Vegas, NM I think it would be fun to check out some of filming locations. This guy is mildly annoying but here is some then and now (2013) of the locations.

    It's OK if you don't like it. The movie is actually a litmus test to track down Russian Bots. You've just exposed yourself. I bet you hate Rocky IV too?
    Probably hates Hunt for Red October because a Soviet defected.

    Now that I think about it, seeing Red Dawn was the 1st time I can remember having a crush on AK's. With that film, I fell in love with that rugged, imposing look to them compared to M-16's,(although I always loved M16's for a number of reasons too). The front sight and that drop-down look to the gas block on that low-slung barrel was the "piece de resistance" for me. That curve to the magazine. It just looked so much more bad-ass than other weapons; primal, formidable. It seemed to always be associated with rebellion, desperation and chaos. It went against the grain. I was a punk(rocker) back in the 80's and non-conformity was our thing. The AK-47 seemed to parallel our mindset.

    There certainly were other films back then that featured AKs, but Red Dawn was the first one I saw anyway that showcased them. It gave the audience a lot of exposure to them. I thought that scene where C. Thomas Howell stoically and nonchalantly just executed that traitor with his AK from the hip was the most bad-ass thing I'd ever seen.

    I remember after that film I started drawing AK's obsessively, usually at school while I should've been paying attention.

    I grew up with a father who was a Hungarian 56er....

    Any killings of Russians pleased him.

    Having lived in Hungary now and seeing what my family went through....that included executions and some others dying in jail in the freezing cold naked...thanks to the KGB and AVO.

    I can understand his hatred and his appreciation for the movie.

    Another good 80's AK movie was "The Beast." Interesting story behind that film too. The writer actually went to A-stan during the Soviet occupation and linked up with the Muj to write about it all. They used real T-72's in the film too. Really accurate portrayal especially considering when it was made.

    I have both. They are ok. I like Tom Clancy movies.

    The Company is a good one. About the history of the CIA from the Cold War to the end of Soviet Union. It was a TNT miniseries. Has a section on the Hungarian Revolution.
