Interesting Cast & Blonde Bombshell Peggy Castle Illuminate Typical Film
Spot the Upcoming Stars is as Good as it Gets in this Standard, Clichéd, Static, and Pretentiously Penned Korean War Flick. The Dialog Tries Mightily to be Poetic and Insightful but is Nothing but Lame, Sophomoric, and Silly.
Richard Conte Leads this Band of Stereotypes, who are Introduced in a Prolog with a Jingoistic Melting Pot of American Soldiers Brought Together to Fight the Invading Commies.
This is a Typical 1950's Movie About Fighting Men. Made Just a Few Years After the Conflict Ended, Seems to Offer a Forced and Apologetic Tribute to the 50,000 Americans Who Perished in the Stalemate.
Peggie Castle is Recruited to Nurse the Wounded and is a Striking Blonde Bombshell that is Somehow Found on the Frontlines Amidst the Action but Never Loses Her Made Up Fifties Style Face and Hairdoo.
While Nice to Look At Among the Goofy Grunts, She is Only There for Love (and marriage) Interest for the Soon to be Returning Lieutenant, Have Some Baby Boomers, and Live Happily Ever After.
Overall, a Somewhat Bland Movie with One Good Action Sequence and can Only be Recommended for War Movie Completest.
