Was it really like that?
Just watched the movie and although I enjoyed it, I didn't get how the two Australian guys were driving around like they owned the place. It sure made it seem like they were better off being POWs than off fighting alongside their non-POW buddies. Even the rough treatment Peter Finch gets could have been avoided had he not swiped the chickens. But besides that, would the Japanese allow POWs to drive around like that?share
