After living abroad for several years, journalist John Royer returns to the United States just after the U.S. enters World War II. His boast that he could easily smuggle rubber, a key wartime natural resource, out of Malaya has him tasked with doing just that. He manages to get someone from his past, Carnaghan, sprung from Alactraz and together they head off to South East Asia posing as Irishmen. Once there, Carnaghan lines up some of his old cronies and with Royer and a few plantation owners plans to smuggle the rubber out from under the Japanese army's watchful eye. Written by
The destroyer that Tracy and Stewart start their adventure on is a Fletcher Class Destroyer. The first was laid down in 1941 and the last in 1944; 175 war built. It was the first of the U.S. Navy's large destroyers during World War II; it was also was the class with the largest number of examples built. Most served in the Pacific war. See more »

Stewart gets Tracy out of jail to steal rubber from the Japs in Malaya during WWII. Not too much violence for a war movie but loads of adventure and twists. Obviously they'll succeed but not without a lot of conflict and action. The kind of movie you'll want to see several times because it's one of the best war movies ever made. Excellent acting, dialog, cinematography and direction. About the best actors possible to get into one movie. Wish it was on video tape.
