Made long before Clint Eastwood's acclaimed Letters from Iwo Jima, but only four years after the famous battle itself, this blood-and-thunder war movie recreates the events of the Allies' Pacific campaign. John Wayne stars as embittered Marine Sergeant Stryker, and the film is really more a study of one soldier's war than a historical document. Stryker is loathed by his men for being such a tough instructor, but they soon learn that there's more to him than meets the eye.
This haunting World War II drama about the psychological and spiritual toll of war centres on a US platoon struggling against Japanese forces.
