Catch-22 (6/10) Movie CLIP – Bomb the Ocean (1970) HD

Catch-22 movie clips:

Yossarian (Alan Arkin) defies orders by refusing to bomb innocent civilians.

Director Mike Nichols and writer-actor Buck Henry followed their enormous hit The Graduate (1967) with this timely adaptation of Joseph Heller’s satiric antiwar novel. Haunted by the death of a young gunner, all-too-sane Capt. Yossarian (Alan Arkin) wants out of the rest of his WW II bombing missions, but publicity-obsessed commander Colonel Cathcart (Martin Balsam) and his yes man, Colonel Korn (Henry), keep raising the number of missions that Yossarian and his comrades are required to fly. After Doc Daneeka (Jack Gilford) tells Yossarian that he cannot declare him insane if Yossarian knows that it’s insane to keep flying, Yossarian tries to play crazy by, among other things, showing up nude in front of despotic General Dreedle (Orson Welles). As all of Yossarian’s initially even-keeled friends, such as Nately (Art Garfunkel) and Dobbs (Martin Sheen), genuinely lose their heads, and the troop’s supplies are bartered away for profit by the ultra-entrepreneurial Milo Minderbinder (Jon Voight), Yossarian realizes that the whole system has lost it, and he can either play along or jump ship. Though not about Vietnam, Catch-22’s ludicrous military machinations directly evoked its contemporary context in the Vietnam era. Cathcart and Dreedle care more about the appearance of power than about victory, and Milo cares for money above all, as the complex narrative structure of Yossarian’s flashbacks renders the escalating events appropriately surreal. Confident that the combination of a hot director and a popular, culturally relevant novel would spell blockbuster, Paramount spent a great deal of money on Catch-22, but it wound up getting trumped by another 1970 antiwar farce: Robert Altman’s MASH. With audiences opting for Altman’s casual Korean War iconoclasm over Nichols’ more polished symbolism, the highly anticipated Catch-22 flopped, although the New York Film Critics Circle did acknowledge Arkin and Nichols. Despite this reception, Catch-22’s ensemble cast and pungent sensibility effectively underline the insanity of war, Vietnam and otherwise.

  2. I hate the endchapter with tuttifrutti .

  3. Absolutely watch the movie.
    It's brilliant.
    Read the book.

    But for gods sake….listen to the pilot sing!!

  4. Only time you can see Major Major is when he's not there

  5. Sounds like Neebs Gaming honestly.

  6. am i missing all the jokes or is this just bad?

  7. They're just dagos who cares?

  8. Where did Yossarian get his info about Ferria, Italy ? Why did the fish have to suffer ??

  9. Hahaha I haven't seen the movie since age 8 or 9 at a drive-in. I remember this scene all too well.

  10. LOVE this movie! Also love the name of the General, "Dweedle"! Alan Arkin makes this movie great…….

  11. if that jeep had have come to an abrupt stop, cathcart's nose woulda broke off in dreedle's arse, the weasel.

  12. where can I get this movie?

  13. HarvestingPeace just released there new Song at "What You're Capable Of" (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO!!) Check it out!!

  14. It was either B-25H-1NA 43-4513 (Modified to look like a B-25C) or B-25J-25NC 44-30823.

  15. The scene showing Alan Arkin in the nose of the B-25, in the beginning of this clip, was filmed in a studio, using front projection.

  16. Yes. Actually the modified camera plane was camouflage-painted and took part in the mass-takeoff in "Catch-22", but I haven't been able to spot it.

  17. That makes sense. B-25s film more movies than they appear in.

  18. Both the waist and tail gun openings were uncovered on the modified camera plane, to allow the cameras an unrestricted view. The same was the case with the B-25 filming "The Battle of Britain".

  19. I heard it was the tail gun, but that's more likely. Why did they leave'em open during the movie? It was covered with Plexiglas during the war.

  20. The aerial director, Johnny Jordan, refused to wear a safety harness and died when he fell out through the waist gun opening while filming bomber formations over the ocean.
