Fun fact: I provided the MREs to Millenium Films for this project.

The inside story was that the main character always fed the dog Pork Rib MRE, and his favorite was Cheese Tortellini.

So they needed 22 MREs, 11 x Pork Rib and 11 x Cheese Tortellini as fresh as possible as the original plan was to have Orlando Bloom actually eat the MREs.

Which was a challenge and I advised not to do it as these menus are no longer in production.

Last thing we want to do is make a star sick so I believe that plan was scrapped or edited out in the final cut.

Enjoyed reading your post. That was a good job.

Than I’ll share I was responsible for the DVD cover of the 1956 West Point Story that many soldiers wish was never cancelled in retrospect. If it wasn’t for work that I did, the cover wouldn’t exist in the format it was published in.

Fun fact: Scott Eastwood, son of Clint Eastwood appeared in The Outpost film; Clint Eastwood, Scott’s father appeared in The West Point Story in either 1956 or 1957. Clint’s son looks and sounds just like him — amazing.

Here’s the clip I previously posted of Clint Eastwood in The West Point Story viewtopic.php?f=16&t=6980&sid=bcde8ff10 ... 2c6d04cbda
