Make Marines out of them this time out.

The basic plot of this film was one that Republic Pictures would dust off and use every year or so. The action in this one trotted all over the globe, but the underlying story was that of three buddies, and the leader was hot-headed or irresponsible or devil-may-care but some action he took would indirectly or accidentally cause the death of one of his friends. He would then straighten up and fly right and go about the task of bringing to justice the culprits who killed his buddy. Republic used this basic plot in "Storm Over Bengal", "Guns in the Dark", "Rough Riders Roundup", "Remember Pearl Harbor", and "Twilight on the Rio Grande". Lippert and Ron Ormond stole the "Guns in the Dark" version intact and remade it in 1950 as "Colorado Ranger." That one had James/Jimmy Ellison as the lead, while Ellison was the killed-buddy in "The Leathernecks Have Landed."

During the Korean War/Conflict/Police Action Republic re-issued "The Leathernecks Have Landed", "Join the Marines" and "Come On" Leathernecks" as a triple feature booking, and used fighting scenes from "Sands of Iwo Jima" as background for the re-issue posters that had all three titles on the same poster.
