Goofs

When the American soldiers come upon Han and his German Shepherd, which he has named "Lobo", Han--played by young Hispanic actor Manuel Padilla--gets angry and shouts at the dog, "Kill, Lobo!" "Lobo" is Spanish for "wolf"; it's unlikely, to say the least, that a small boy living in an isolated farming area in early 1950s Korea would be able to speak three languages--Korean, English and Spanish.

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.
