Movie Info

Although limited by a low-budget, this is a respectable wartime drama by director John A. Bushelman, set on the front lines at the end of the Korean War, just before a truce is called. In spite of the pending truce, a gung-ho captain in need of leave time (John Goddard) decides to take his men on a useless patrol, convinced that it is necessary. Before the men can be led into any dangerous situations, the captain accidentally steps on a unique type of landmine (called a "bouncing Betty"). He is suddenly frozen with his foot on the mine because unlike all other mines, these lethal weapons are designed to go off after the pressure on them is released. A corporal long anxious to get out of Korea overcomes his desire for a safe and happy exodus to tackle the problem of disentangling the captain without killing either of them in the process.
