Gung Ho [1943] - Robert Mitchum
 

Product Code: MOVIEDVD028

Description
 
GUNG HO! is the true story of a special battalion picked from the toughest men in the U.S Marines and given the dangerous mission of recapturing Japanese-held islands in the South Pacific during World War II. Hollywood tough guy Randolph Scott stars as their commander, Colonel Thorwald, who recruits and trains the soldiers--collectively known as "Carlson's Raiders"--in all imaginable forms of combat, culminating in an explosive battle sequence at the Japanese stronghold on Makin Island. The film, which also features a great performance by legendary icon Robert Mitchum, introduced the expression "gung ho" to the American vernacular and was an important piece of morale-raising propaganda during U.S. involvement in World War II.
