See what they did to help in the Phillipines in WWII. A good balance of humor and drama & telling it like it was.
9 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wallace Beery is a fine, wonderfully rugged actor with a touch of tongue n' cheek hanging around in his lines. He did a marvelous job in this old vintage Hollywood movie. I had not thought of him as a leading man, but by golly he carries it off in fine form. The Marines should be proud! Semper Fi! Oooooorah! The movie with heart & humor. I liked it very much. It just played on AMC on Cable TV. It tells the story of a real war hero who won a medal. It takes place in the Phillipines. It tells a fine tale, the characters are genuine and not too polished. If I am not mistaken, there are real Marines in the parade sequences. Highly recommended for a "good read". It enables me to grok what all those brave and remarkable young and older men did for us in WWII. May God Bless em' and may we always honor their service.
