A WWII film set on a Pacific island. Japanese and allied forces occupy different parts of the island. When a group of British soldiers are sent on a mission behind enemy lines, things don't go exactly to plan. This film differs in that some of the 'heros' are very reluctant, but they come good when they are pursued by the Japanese who are determined to prevent them returning to base. Written by
The US Navy's base at Subic Bay in the Philippines was a perfect location, as it had all the necessary amenities as well as having rain forest on one side and salt water on the other, in addition to its proximity to the city of Manila. See more »

ASSOCIATED BRITISH COMPANY comes this well told tale of a WW 2 SOE/OSS commando mission to destroy a japanese communications base. The film also stars KEN TAKAKURA as a non sadisitic japanese commander which is a change of pace from the john wayne..."let's avenge the USS ARIZONA" SANDS OF IWO JIMA fare. The character he portrays (takakura) is full of honor and humanity.he is a soldier fighting on what the US would consider the wrong side of the war but from his perspective his side is the right side. I rather enjoy this film as CLIFF ROBERTSON and MICHAEL CAINE give two brilliant performances. The original score adds to the films flavor and it is one of the better produced WW 2 commando films I ate up as a kid on tv. ASSOCIATE BRITISH COMPANY has no relation to the united states tv network ABC for a while they were a british company that did work with BBC and THAMES etc. The look of the film is authentic and Caine gives a briliant performance as a pessimist..the anti secular humansit hot off the heels of BATTLE OF BRITAIN..the nice thing is in this movie he doesn't get eliminated early in the feature. I recommend this movie to WW 2 and action buffs. this and OBSESSION are two of CLIFF ROBERTSONS best roles.
