Outdated WWII flagwaver.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

... the film moves from the familiar cliches of platoon drama character vignettes to the sinewy action scenes of the invasion.

Audience Reviews for Gung Ho!

½

Based on true events* still pure fantasy, the ending is propaganda par excellance. The whole movie is propaganda, portraying these handpicked Marines as the savior of the world. At the time, I guess they were. Randolf Scott, Robert Michum in a bit role, Noah Berry in a bigger role.

Considering the time it was made, not real bad. Pure American balogny, filled with so much military cliche. Fast paced. Robert Mitchum plays a role. While the narration by Chet Huntley (NBC news anchorman in the sixties) is pure propaganda, the training scenes are interesting to see. This film starts 7 weeks after Pearl Harbor. A typical gung ho movie, the Japanese are destined to lose this one. Our boys, with losses, complete their mission as heroes of course. Lots of pyrotechnics at the end.

SEE the entire film: http://www.archive.org/details/Gung_Ho A 1943 war film starring Randolph Scott. The story is based on the real-life World War II Makin Island raid led by Lieutenant Colonel Evans Carlson's 2nd Marine Raider Battalion. The Raiders ship off in a submarine. The fast moving film is a template for many war films and other adventure or western films where a group of professional killers and misfits in polite society are handpicked by an inspiring leader, trained to perfection, then use their initiative and skills in marksmanship, combatives, and knife fighting on an enemy who greatly outnumber them. [img]http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSZd-F9i6eZm9KUkV_eNa3d3oyuKb-moxIyrVJHI1xPcODz7eU5[/img] In 52 minutes, the battalion is now trained and sent into combat. They sail past Pearl Harbor and see the destruction. This is a no holds barred, no politically correct film. The Japs are Japs, or Nips, or gooks or whatever slang term works. So don't lose your wig if that kind of talk crops up. Not for those who have moral problems with killing. These guys want only to survive. The mission is to kill every Jap on the island, a 6 to 1 ratio. Surprise is their main weapon. I guess its not being cowardly to suprise attack after all. Anyway, combat on the island is fierce. Of course, all that big talk about knocking out the enemy was pure pep talk. Big talk don't stop bullets. BTW, Mitchum gets blasted in the first attack. All that hand to hand combat training emphasized in the start of the film seldom shows up. Its all bullets all the way. NOTES about the film: 1 IF you ever watched the tv series Rockford Files, this has Rockford's dad in it when he was younger. Does a great job too. His name is Noah Berry as Curt. 2 A young Robert Mitchum enlists for the Raider Battalion. As Randolph Scott interviews him, the two side by side look pretty much the same build, skinny! 3 These elite Marines wear what I know is a Pith helmet. Sometimes you nowadays see mailmen wearing them. A rare helmet to see today. In jungle movies you may have seen these pith helmets. In the original King Kong it was worn too. 4 The Japanese are of course portrayed as ruthless, decieving losers who in the last minutes get bombed by their own air forces. 5 * Many incidents in the film did not occur in the real Makin Island raid. (really? I never would have guessed). Black and White, 126 minutes Directed by Ray Enright Produced by Walter Wanger Written by Lt W.S. LeFran├žois USMCR (based on his Saturday Evening Post story We Mopped Up Makin Island) Lucien Hubbard Narrated by Chet Huntley (later NBC anchorman in the sixties) Starring Randolph Scott Music by Frank Skinner Distributed by Universal Studios Release date(s) December 20, 1943 Running time 88 minutes [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ae/Gunghopos.jpg/220px-Gunghopos.jpg[/img]

WWII drama starts out slow, but then gets exciting. Never boring. I just wish I got to know the characters more, because I didn't really care about some of them dying. Which wasn't intentional.

Ultra patriotic morale booster from just after America had entered WWII. Randolph Scott takes a break from the saddle to lead a troop into battle. His last speech, directly into the camera, is the very height of 40's Hollywood flag waving. Robert Mitchum who was just starting out has a good, if small, showcase role in one of the 19!! movies he appeared in that year.
