Marquee pull of John Wayne and Robert Ryan in the action market has been teamed with a story of Marine fighter pilots.
This is arguably Ray's least distinguished film, a relatively conventional, anonymous WWII drama made for RKO mogul Howard Hughes.
Though John Wayne plays a similar role to that of his other WWII movies (Sands of Iwo Jima), the tough but sensitive commander, this picture is better than the rest due to smooth and crispy direction by Nicholas Ray.
Overlong but action-filled.
This is the most ordinary film Nicholas Ray ever made.
Pure WWII jingo and John Wayne. But stylish and heroic nonetheless.
The Flying Leathernecks packs a surprising amount of intelligent insight in with its nationalistic rally cry.
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.
