Battle Cry 11/07/17

The Warner Archive Collection

James Jones, move over — Leon Uris clobbers the big screen with a sprawling adaptation of his WW2 combat novel, loaded down with roles for promising young actors. This is the one where twice as much time is spent on love affairs than fighting. War may be hell, but if Mona Freeman, Nancy Olson, Dorothy Malone, Anne Francis and Allyn McLerie are going to be there for comfort, sign me up. The big-star roster includes Aldo Ray, Tab Hunter, Van Heflin, and James Whitmore. On Blu-rayfrom The Warner Archive Collection.
