Trivia

Director Don Siegel liked to assemble his casts for script readings just before he started shooting, and he got angry with Edmond O'Brien for refusing to attend the reading. Later he found out why: O'Brien was nearly blind from cataracts and couldn't read scripts himself. Instead, every night during the shooting of a film, he would have his wife read him the scenes he was supposed to shoot the next day and would memorize his lines from her reading them. O'Brien didn't want word of his disability to get out for fear no one would hire him if they knew. See more »

Standard war-fare
21 January 2002 | by (Hemet, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Stock company of the usual soldier types with a standard extraneous female in tow (and the standard complications that brings). Rarely get the sense that you are in a Philippian jungle - or in any real danger. Siegel at least doesn't let things drag, however, and there are a couple of good action scenes - particularly the ending. Interactions with, and between, the natives are also (a little) more sophisticated than is usually pictured. 5/10.
