Good stuff, thanks for that!

I imagine this is the inspiration for Farewell to the King with Nick Nolte. One of my favorite war flicks.

Is that the one he made in Thailand? That was a great movie. This movie about the Borneo Headhunters and the American Airmen is a true story. But that one your talking about is a great movie. That's something I would like to do. Their is people in northern Thailand that live like that.

Thanks
