Trivia

The title is from John Dryden's poem, "Alexander's Feast", stanza 1: "None but the brave/ deserve the fair." See more »

Goofs

During the shooting scenes between the Marines and the Japanese, some troops from both sides kneel or stand in plain sight of their opponents, and a few are killed as a result. In actual combat, soldiers would remain crouched or prone behind cover so as to present the smallest possible target to the enemy. See more »

Crazy Credits

The line "Nobody Ever Wins" appears in place of "The End" just before the end credits start, which is appropriate given the film's anti-war message. See more »

WWII Action....
20 November 1999 | by (Maplewood NJ) – See all my reviews

A plane load of US Marines crashlands on a Pacific Island held by Japanese soldiers during WW2. The Marines include a green lieutenant (Sands), a veteran sergeant (Dexter) and a medic (Sinatra). Clint Walker plays the pilot who is more than just a pilot.

The Japanese have been bypassed by their own and are seeking a way off the island. There are a few skirmishes with the Marines and then a "truce".

But how long will it hold for?

Good characters, story and actors make it worth watching.
