Movie Info

In an Army field hospital during the Korean War, a tempestuous relationship develops between an arrogant, cynical, brilliant military surgeon named Maj. Jed Webbe (Humphrey Bogart) and a nurse, Lt. Ruth McCara (June Allyson), who is new to the front. Though Webbe is gruff and awkward in his advances, his romance with McCara nevertheless deepens. However, the harsh reality of war and the couple's commitment to their military duties complicates the love affair.

Critic Reviews for Battle Circus

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • A war story that has everything but a plot.

    June 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An absorbing, often tingling background of a mobile Army surgical hospital at the Korean front. Unfortunately for the general pace and impact, considerable time is allotted to a dawdling and familiar personal drama.

    April 8, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though not one of Bogart's strongest, this serviceable feature is one of few war (Korea) films in which he wears uniform, and his only MGM picture, co-starring with that studio's reliable performer, June Allyson.

    October 19, 2012 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Singularly undistinguished except for Bogart's presence.

    April 8, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
