Pvt. Russell Drexler [Joe Flynn] comments on the hazards of piloting gliders in combat: "The whole idea seems to be to try and crash through as many fences as you can before you burst into flames." Gliders are unpowered aircraft and carry no fuel that would burst into flames. See more »

Comic look at Army life stateside in WW2
13 January 2003 | by smokehill retrieversSee all my reviews

Light, entertaining piece that oddly seems to fit both Webb and Mitchum. The scriptwriter had an excellent feel for how things worked (and still work, probably) in the Army if you know how to play the angles. Most of us who spent a few years on active duty (I spent 21 yrs) pulled a lot of these stunts, and we all knew people like Archie Hall -- and most of the other denizens of Camp Buckley.

This ain't CITIZEN KANE, but it's a lot of fun, probably a lot more so if you spent time in uniform.
