This one stars Pat O'Brien AND Robert Ran--so of course I'll watch it!
20 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While Pat O'Brien's films often lacked realism, he was a fun actor to watch and his films almost never failed to entertain. Robert Ryan was also extremely entertaining (but a bit underrated) but a different sort of actor--much more believable and ordinary (in a good way). With both these wonderful actors in the film, it's no surprise that I'd watch this film!

As far as the film goes, it is a pretty standard WWII action film. It chronicles a group of Marines through some nameless engagements as well as a romance between Ryan and Ruth Hussey--who, inexplicably, was cast as an Australian--though she hadn't a trace of the proper accent. Nothing great here, but competently done. Oh, and despite Ryan receiving second billing, clearly he's the leading man here, though O'Brien was the household name--thus the billing. Worth seeing but not necessary unless you are a Robert Ryan fan.
