Storyline

This drama is set in World War II Australia, where an American Marine, Rebel is recuperating from wounds suffered in battle. He is weary of war and is intent on going AWOL and escaping from Australia. He becomes infatuated with a local singer, Kathy and pursues her. Kathy is married and initially is not interested in him, but later begins to love Rebel. Kathy receives a letter advising her that her husband was killed in battle. The local police and the U.S. Military are searching for Rebel as an AWOL soldier. Rebel arranges to escape Austalia by a cargo ship, but eventually allows himself to be arrested in order to keep the local police from arresting Kathy for harboring him.

Not just a Turkey but a Hen Turkey!!
30 April 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Is Hell a real place? I don't know but if it's anything like sitting and watching this movie I know I don't want to go there. I experienced just that in a theatre in San Diego with this picture. This film is just plain BAD!!!
