Opening Sequence - Contains front cover, opening page, and pages 1 to 6.

During the audio commentary for The Ninth Configuration DVD, William Peter Blatty mentions his initial idea for the opening sequence of the film:

"I had devised a Vietnam War sequence in which a group of refugees are being shepherded away from the front lines by American soldiers, and one old Vietnamese woman is hobbled and can't walk; and an American soldier, a young man, picks her up and carries her on his back for many miles. And when they get to the rest camp, he puts aside his rifle, turns away from her, and she reaches into her dress and pulls out a live grenade, and tosses it toward him. And we go then to the face of the captain of the unit, and his face is spattered with the blood of this marine; the young marine. And he is Captain Bennish, whom we'll see as one of the inmates later on."
