John Wayne is a no-nonsense WWII squadron leader whose unforgiving style clashes with that of his fellow officer, Robert Ryan. But when called into action over Guadalcanal, he bravely leads his men to victory and earns the respect of all. Featuring Academy Award-winner Wayne ("Stagecoach," "True Grit," "The Searchers"), Oscar-nominee Robert Ryan ("Crossfire," "The Wild Bunch," "Bad Day at Black Rock") and Jay C. Flippin ("Cat Ballou"). Directed by Oscar-nominee Nicholas Ray ("Rebel Without a Cause"). Outstanding aerial combat footage.
