During the early days of the Korean War, U.S. Army colonel Steve Janowski is one of the military advisers training the South Korean army and he's tasked with evacuating American civilians from the war zone.
The original running time was 119 minutes before it was edited down to 105 minutes for US release. The European version ran longer. In 2004 the British Film Institute screened a print with a running time of 114 minutes. Director Robert Aldrich felt that certain scenes lost their meaning with the trims made. See more »
Based on the Leon Uris novel 'The Angry Hills' is a disappointment. This is a long rambling film and and Mitchum has a long ramble through it, just about acting. Characters appear and disappear, the plot wavers, stops and starts. There are other interesting actors equally wasted; Sebastian Cabot, Donald Wolfit, Marius Goring, and tough guy Stanley Baker doesn't even get to face off with Mitchum. Theodore Bikel comes out better with a sad but sympathetic performance, even when being nasty.The female characters are thinly drawn.
The best things are the clear, crisp photography and the extensive use of location shooting. The hills may be angry but they sure look pretty.
