John Wayne is a no-nonsense WWII squadron leader whose unforgiving style clashes with that of his fellow officer, Robert Ryan. But when called into action over Guadalcanal, he bravely leads his men to victory and earns the respect of all. Featuring Academy Award-winner Wayne ("Stagecoach," "True Grit," "The Searchers"), Oscar-nominee Robert Ryan ("Crossfire," "The Wild Bunch," "Bad Day at Black Rock") and Jay C. Flippin ("Cat Ballou"). Directed by Oscar-nominee Nicholas Ray ("Rebel Without a Cause"). Outstanding aerial combat footage.

    I love this movie. It's one of my all time favorite war movies. This its nice to see F6F Hellcats for most of the movie, until the squadron switches to F4U Corsairs. The Duke gives a great performance in this movie, and it is a must have for any fan of either John Wayne, or of War moves.
