U.S. House Un-American Activities Committee investigators Jim McLain and Mal Baxter attempt to break up a ring of Communist Party troublemakers in Hawaii (ignoring somewhat, as do their superiors in the Congress, that membership in the Communist Party was, at the time, legal in the U.S.) Written by

Many people will disagree, but this is one of my favorite John Wayne films of all time, and for all the wrong reasons: This film is a cold-war camp classic that has to be seen to be believed. Imagine Alfred the Butler from the 1960's TV show Batman as the head commie and you have some idea what you are in for. James Arness is such great at John Wayne's side kick who hates commies because they shot at him during the war. I could watch this film anytime because it is very relaxing and has a quiet air about it, but at the same time, such a harsh reminder of what America was like in the 50's.
