Movie Info

During the Pacific phase of World War II, Marine Col. Thorwald (Randolph Scott) puts together a special strike force to capture the Makin Island, a strategic territory held by Japan. He goes out of his way to select soldiers who are rugged or unbalanced misfits, such as former boxer "Pig-Iron" Matthews (Bob Mitchum) and yokel Rube Tedrow (Rod Cameron). As their raid draws closer, Thorwald dispatches with all ranks and titles, and trains his group using unconventional methods.

Audience Reviews for Gung Ho!

  • Jun 22, 2013
    Ultra patriotic morale booster from just after America had entered WWII. Randolph Scott takes a break from the saddle to lead a troop into battle. His last speech, directly into the camera, is the very height of 40's Hollywood flag waving. Robert Mitchum who was just starting out has a good, if small, showcase role in one of the 19!! movies he appeared in that year.

    Enjoyable but thick with stylistic propaganda.
