Movie Info

Based on a true story, this gripping WW II-era war drama chronicles the courage of five brothers who bravely fought to save the battleship Juneau after it was fatally torpedoed at Gaudalcanal. Meant to pay tribute to the soldiers who had died and containing some truly heartbreaking scenes, the film was so realistic that audiences, many of whom had lost family and friends already in battle, were unable to bear the grief. Some theaters even refused to show the film, which is also known as The Sullivans.
