Captain Tom Reynolds and his band of skilled O.S.S. operatives are in WWII Burma to train the Kachin natives in modern warfare. But jungle combat, particularly against a Japanese army as familiar with the terrain as the Kachin, is more grueling than Reynolds had reckoned. Some respite is found in the arms of beautiful Carla, but after Chinese rebels cross the border to loot and murder American soldiers, Reynolds abandons all notions of "military protocol" and seeks requital.

At the beginning of this WWII film, supplies are parachuted to the troops. On several of the boxes, USAF was stenciled on the boxes. The United States Air Force was not named until 1947 and the stencil should have read USAAF (United States Army Air Force). See more »
Now, let me dwell just for one moment on the American male. They're absolutely insidious, Carla. They're full of the lonesome prairie and the smell of tumbleweed. They're sincere and dedicated, and your Tom Reynolds...
Really, Nikko, he's not 'my Tom Reynolds.'
Your Tom Reynolds is no exception. A regular Abe Lincoln in North Burma. A girl like you with a sophisticated palate... is a pushover for the type.
What a terribly civilized man you are. You never lose your balance.

There are three well done battle scenes in this movie. The scenery is fabulous. Gina Lollobrigida is gorgeous. All the secondary characters are well acted, including Dean Jones, Charles Bronson and Steve McQueen.
The bad news is that the script and lead actors (Sinatra and Lollobrigida) are terrible. The movie mixes an absurd and unbelievable romance with a series of clichéd and unbelievable war situations.
This may not be Sinatra's worst acting job, but of the ten or so movies I've seen him in, he has never been so wooden and dull. It seems as if he walked onto the set, did his lines in one take and went out to the nightclubs.
Sinatra fans will probably enjoy the movie. Everybody else, not so much.
