About this item

Triple Feature includes "Objective, Burma!," "Never So Few" and "Go For Broke" "Objective, Burma!" - Mission accomplished! Errol Flynn, who brought boyish bravado to "The Adventures Of Robin Hood," "Dodge City," "Gentlemen Jim" and other screen yarns, turns in a mature, acclaimed performance as the leader of a paratrooper patrol stranded in Burma. It's "one of the few features of which I am proud." Flynn later said. There's reason for pride. "This is one of the finest World War II films made during the war," The Movie Guide says. "One of the best war movies," Guide for the Film Fanatic's Danny Peary wrote, "and among the grimmest." Raoul Walsh directs the hard-hitting action, shot in rugged California locations so similar to Burma that veterans of that campaign refused to believe the crew hadn't somehow sneaked into Asia. "Never So Few" - Frank Sinatra told the director to give the newcomer a break. John Sturges ("The Great Escape") obliged, providing favorable camera angles for Sinatra's young co-star. In his first big-budget film, Steve McQueen was ready to grab the movie world's attention. McQueen plays Bill Ringa, one of the O.S.S. combatants harassing the enemy in World War II Burma. Sinatra is Capt. Tom Reynolds, leading the guerilla fighters and risking court martial while doing so. Also among "Never So Few's" many are Charles Bronson, Peter Lawford and in her first Hollywood film, Gina Lollobrigida. About McQueen, the New York Herald Tribune's reviewer wrote: "He possesses that combination of smooth-rough charm that suggests star possibilities." A star is born in "Never So Few." "Go For Broke" - A bigoted Texan, Lieutenant Michael Grayson (Van Johnson), is assigned to command the U.S. 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II. Learning that the regiment is composed entirely of Japanese-American volunteers, he immediately requests a transfer. Suspicious and distrustful of his troops, the Lieutenant finds it hard to believe that "Japs" are fit to be American soldiers. Denied his transfer, the unhappy commander and his regiment ship out the raging battlefields of Europe. "Go For Broke" is the motto of the 442nd and the troops' daring and bravery under fire prove it to be well-deserved. Lt. Grayson's prejudices gradually turn to respect and admiration as his heroic subordinates acquit themselves with valor and a clear determination to go above and beyond the call of duty. Taking on heavy casualties in carrying out missions, the 442nd was one of the U.S. Army's most decorated infantry regiments during WWII. Many of the actual veterans of the celebrated fighting unit play themselves in Go For Broke. Appearing in more than 100 films during his long career, Van Johnson became one of America's top war film heroes during the 1940's and 1950's. In addition to "Go For Broke," popular WWII-inspired movies include "The White Cliffs Of Dover" (1944), "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" (1944), "Command Decision" (1948), "Battleground" (1949), and the Oscar-nominated film, "The Caine Mutiny" (1954), one of his most memorable starring roles.
