Goofs

While looking for food, Han comes upon a wrecked Jeep and some scattered supplies, and finds them guarded by a large German Shepherd tied to a box. When the dog starts barking at him, Han says--in English--"Good dog", then notices a box that says "K Rations" and heads for it. It's not likely that a five- or six-year-old Korean boy on an isolated farm in the hills far from any town or village would know how to speak and read English. See more »

A Boy And His Dog In The Korean War
2 October 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A.C. Lyles who is primarily known as a producer of B westerns utilizing players past their prime years decided to go in for B Korean War film which combines escaping GI POWS with a good old fashioned boy and his dog story in The Young And The Brave. The results are less than gratifying.

The trio of escaping GIs are Rory Calhoun, William Bendix and Robert Ivers. Bendix is really looking way too old to be a convincing combat soldier and in fact he was in his middle Fifties. A friendly Korean farmer and wife help them out which causes their deaths, but their son played by Manuel Padilla and his adopted German Shepherd dog escape with the soldiers. The kid and the dog prove most useful like Rusty and Rin Tin Tin.

The location for the film looks a whole lot like many a western was shot there and I suspect A.C. Lyles went to familiar turf to shoot this film. All the players look like they've really got no conviction in this project.

Maybe A.C. should have stuck to westerns.
