Trivia

For years, Peter Dinklage had indicated in interviews that a Hervé Villechaize biopic was a long-time passion project of him. Like Dinklage, Villechaize had a form of dwarfism, and his short stature made it hard for him to find work without being typecast; something Dinklage was finally able to overcome due to the wide range of the artistic qualities that express his work as a great actor that he is, which also includes his contribution to the huge success of Game of Thrones (2011).

Goofs

Nearly every military uniform worn in the film has mistakes that should have been caught by the wardrobe staff or by the film's technical advisor. Examples are, ribbon out of order or not correct for the character or time period, uniforms with a mixture of enlisted and officer insignia attached, insignia located in incorrect locations, and too many more to mention.

Excellent! See this one...
23 October 2018 | by rhmaclSee all my reviews

I got sucked right into this flick on HBO; the era (my teens), the music, the reconstruction of timeless scenes and TV personalities were spot on. But Mr. Dinklage is excellent, surpassing expectations and delivering a huge gift to the entertainment universe. The story was well-told by framing a range of 'out-of-control' personal worlds, while harvesting gut wrenching observations about being alive, being a person, being flawed, being human. Dinklage bravely fills-in that void between "you" and "him" with honesty, authenticity and structure. Great performance. It changed me...honestly! I feel like a better person... wow.
