    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Film Commentary: In the 60's and early 70's wherever Civil War or Revolution turned a country into a battleground, there you'd find the Mad Major Calvin Doyle at the head of his crack mercenary troops. The former American Marine had become the paid allie of dictators, military hunters, gorillas, and terrorists. Some describe him as a glorified hitman, others call him a military genius, King of the Wild Geese, that breed of freelance fighting man who throughout history have wandered the world hiring out their services to the highest bidder.
        Bill Keating: Some career. (interrupting film commentary).
        Mr. Roarke: Indeed, quite a story.
        Film Commentary: In Vietnam, Reserve Officer Doyle recalled to active duty as special consultant to the CIA, mysteriously disappears and is posted as a deserter. To this day he remains a fugitive, if indeed he is still alive.
        Mr. Roarke: Mr. Keating, what makes you so certain that Major Doyle is on Fantasy Island?
        Bill Keating: A friend of mine, a sea captain put in here recently and saw him on the beach. Besides Mr. Roarke, you wouldn't have granted me my fantasy unless you were sure he was here.
        Mrs. Keating: Bill's been dreaming about this since Saigon, a world exclusive.
        Tattoo: You were in Vietnam?
        Bill Keating: As a correspondent.
        Mr. Roarke: That was several years ago, you realize that the Major might not be the same man you knew then.
        Bill Keating: A leopard doesn't change his spots Mr. Roarke, once a killer .... well can you tell me where he is?
        Mr. Roarke: I'm afraid you will have to search for your fantasy, Mr. Keating.
        Bill Keating: I see. Thanks.
