Trivia Hacksaw Ridge

Milo Gibson, son of Mel Gibson has an small part playing one of the soldiers. This marks his first apparition on screen and first father and son collaboration on screen. Desmond T. Doss only accepted one Medal of Honor. It had initially been proposed that he received two, but he humbly declined. His work as a medic was praised beacuse he alone saved the lives of 75 men of his company without bearing firearms, as he was a conscientous objector. The film will be released at Venice Film Festival as a 'non competition candidate film'.
