I was stationed on Guam during 1967~68 during which time we did hiking expeditions into the highlands to look for tanks and artifacts. At times we got pretty close to talofofo falls. Little did we know that Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi was living in that area. In 1972 he was captured by villagers and sent home. No one knew he was there. I have some pictures in the public section of the TWB forum describing the story and what we saw in the area.

It's a sad and at the same time amazing story.

I don't know how they are received in English speaking countries, but in German speaking countries many people like them - the german voice actors are just great

Over here in hungary many qoutes from Bud Spencer movies are used every day. The movies are very popular to this day, and I'm yet to meet anybody that didn't find them hilarious.
