About this item

Supplies are dwindling. Troops are hopelessly outnumbered. But even in defeat there is victory. The defenders of the Philippines including PT-boat skippers John Brickley (Robert Montgomery) and Rusty Ryan (John Wayne) will give the U.S. war effort time to regroup after the devastation of Pearl Harbor. Director John Ford's World War II tale knows its battle-scarred topic firsthand. Montgomery was himself a Pacific PT-boat commander and a valorous Bronze Star recipient. Ford filmed the Academy Award?-winning documentary "Battle Of Midway". And Wayne creates a portrait of patriotic resolve as only he can. "They Were Expendable" salutes all who expended themselves during some of the war's bleakest hours.

A new branch of the Navy (PT Boats) based on Cavite, Manila, looking to prove their military value, get their chance when Pearl Harbor is attacked. This is a story about how a company of men, piloting just four fast and unusual craft, bond together as friends and shipmates to retaliate against the enemy and prove just how deadly their fragile ships are. Robert Montgomery, John Wayne and Donna Reed lead a list of fine actors in heartfelt performances. Battle scenes are so realistic and so well done, you feel as if you are there. In 1941 and 1942, as the Pacific strongholds gradually fall to the Japanese, sad choices are made between those military personnel who are and aren't "expendable".

This to was a very good movie, One of my favorites. It too would stick and I could not get it to go on at all. Only played in once, will try again in the near future to see if I can finish the movie. I don't understand why the movie stops and will not go forward or reverse, just stayed there.
