Rather average, formulaic military tale of grunts being whipped into shape by tough drill sargeant Widmark, who has a few issues of his own.
Standard boys to men saga with a bit of tortured romance thrown in made far better than it should be by Richard Widmark.
Richard Widmark is a tough drill sergeant who prepares a bunch of green recruits for service in the Korean War. Karl Malden is his second in command who thinks Widmark is too hard on the young recruits. You've seen this story a hundred times, but who cares. The story was good and worked for "The Sands of Iwo Jima" all the way to "Heartbreak Ridge" and this film is no different. If you've got a good cast and a halfway decent sense of how to write characters, the formula will work and it works just fine here.
life during war time
un excellent film sur l'instruction militaire mais surtout sur l'abus de pouvoir et la mÃ (C)chancetÃ (C) ..... la relation sergent - conscrits inspira Kubrick pour la scene d'ouverture de Full Metal Jacket ..... a voir pour les amateurs des annÃ (C)es 50 .... comme tout les films de cette Ã (C)poque il est un peu trop pro-americain !!!
