Check back around 1 or 2. have to get my armor on and my sword and do battle with the state bureauocrats.

All! Right! Today's Trivia Quiz. On the agenda today is a great war picture. This was, I think, about, the 3rd movie I ever saw at the inside movie theatre. and being the prize is a war cover I thought it appropriate. Now, it can be googled in about 5 seconds but I don't think they have answer to the Q.
The movie, "Imitation General" starring Glenn Ford (great actor) and Red Buttons and a really young Dean Jones.
Anyway, the main character, Glenn Ford, disables two army tanks literally without a weapon.
The Question is, How does he do it?
BTW; I understand there's several war buffs in this crowd. So probably gonna be some rivalry.
So, Good Luck. Go.

I thought there might be a line. Sorry, had to fight with bureaucrats. talk about a war. they all should be shot,
well no, not shot, I guess. just fired. I say, close down all the da*n gov't agencies. That would save our tax money.

He puts a sign on the bridge saying the bridge is mined so that the tanks go thru the creek exposing their underbelly .......

well so much for the internet , maybe I can find the scene on you tube to figure the rest out.

Actually, I think that was the 3rd and /or 4th tanks. In my google search, It was Dean joes that gave him an idea for the
1st two.

OOH OOH..I got the answer..


the Germans were advancing and the
real general in command there gets killed.Dean Jones comes to report
and thinks Glenn Ford is the general. Dean Jones was sent to
get orders on what to do and he tells them these tanks are coming.
Glenn Ford sees the helmet in Dean Jones hand and the fact that his is muddy. He gets an idea on how to get the tanks.He takes a
helmet fills it with mud then hides till a tank comes along,
takes the mud and throws in the view ports of the tank so they can't see. the tank stops, a German pops out of the top and Glenn
throws a grenade into the tank.

I dont know the answer but bob's answer makes sense....I just thought the tank's threads are made of metal??? The only military vehicle similar to the tank that has rubber wheels are Armored PErsonnel Carriers (APCs) right?

Maybe he just popped the bonnets and pulled the coil leads off the distributors.
On second thoughts maybe not, they were probably diesels. Darn
