Saving Private Ryan

Why does Tom Hanks' hand shake in Saving Private Ryan?

His shaking hands reveal the psychic damage he's undergone in the year and a half since he and his men landed in North Africa. Miller must overcome this trauma, must suppress his fears, must show no sign of doubt, must act decisively while under fire.This is heroism of a different order than the macho death cult personified by John Wayne. Miller's is the heroism of an ordinary soldier following impossible orders. Like so many of his generation, Miller is merely doing his job. The casting of Hanks, our Jimmy Stewart or Henry Fonda--the unremarkable, yet uncommonly decent average Joe--reinforces this non-heroic heroism, as does what little we learn of his background: he's that least likely of heroes, an English teacher. Vietnam has taught us that real heroism isn't John Wayne taking out a machine gun nest; it's a man who can't keep his hands from shaking (a man who should be home marking comma splices and sentence fragments) yet who instead is bravely leading men into battle.

This was from an interview with Spielberg...

Why is a four-leaf clover considered to be good luck?

Because most clover have only three leaves not four, so it takes a bit of luck to find a four leaf bit of clover in a field.

The Irish have a tradition that says if someone finds one by accident they will have good luck. Only 1 in 10,000 have 4 leaves. They stand for: Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck. When Eve left the Garden of Eden, some people say she was holding a four-leaf clover. The green hills of Ireland have more four-leaf clovers than anywhere else, or so the Irish say. From that comes the saying, "luck of the Irish." St. Patrick used a shamrock (one that has three leaves) to represent the holy trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Some Christians see the four-leaf clover as a resemblance to the cross and some also say that the fourth leaf is the grace of God. The Irish believe that finding a four-leaf clover is LUCKY but finding one with 5 or more is UNLUCKY. Druids believed that when they carried a shamrock that they could see evil spirits coming so they could get away before they came and they thought that four-leaf clovers guarded against bad luck and offered magical protection.
