Movie Info

Filmed just months after the actual allied invasion of Guadalcanal late in 1942, this patriotic feature follows a ragtag group of Marines sent to fight in the South Pacific. As steely Sgt. Malone (Lloyd Nolan), Brooklyn wiseguy Potts (William Bendix) and the teenaged Anderson (Richard Jaeckel) prepare for battle, they are taken aback when they initially meet no resistance. Rattled by stealthy Japanese snipers, the Marines struggle to stay alive as they plan a major offensive against the enemy.

  • Jan 28, 2009
    Solid war film chronicling one of the bloodiest battles of WWII, the taking of Guadalcanal by the U.S. Marines. Nice performances from Richard Conte, Anthony Quinn and a VERY young Richard Jaeckel.
