Movie Info

As the new commanding officer of a squadron of Marine pilots, Maj. Daniel Kirby (John Wayne), a stern and strict leader, cannot believe the lack of discipline exhibited by the soldiers. As the men resist Kirby's harsh adherence to orders, Capt. Carl Griffin (Robert Ryan) leads their cause for a more relaxed environment. But by pushing his men beyond their limits, Kirby slowly transforms them into battle-ready warriors, forcing all of them to make sacrifices along the way.

Audience Reviews for Flying Leathernecks

  • Sep 26, 2007
    I'm not a huge Robert Ryan fan and this isn't my favorite of Wayne or Ray's either. Overall it's a pretty typical film of the Gung Ho military genre. The action scenes incorporate actual war footage which is pretty cool and Ray's editing is marvelous.
