The invasion of Nicaragua to avenge the deaths of U.S. Marines was based on at least one actual incident. On February 27, 1928, a band of Sandanista rebels killed 5 Marines and wounded 8 others in an ambush.
The wrong-way run was based on the infamous play by Roy Riegels of the University of California in the 1929 Rose Bowl. With the score 0-0 in the second quarter, Riegels recovered a Georgia Tech fumble at the Yellow Jackets' 30, somehow got turned the wrong way, and ran 65 yards toward his own goal line. A teammate grabbed him, but he was dropped at his own 1. The Golden Bears elected to punt, the punt was blocked out of the end zone for a safety touch, and the 2 points provided the margin of victory in Georgia Tech's 8-7 win. The movie uses actual footage of Riegels from the game.
