John Wayne, Robert Ryan and some thrilling color combat footage grace this Howard Hughes WW2 aviation epic, that’ famous for being the odd-title-out in the filmography of Nicholas Ray. Just how did the politically diverging Ray and Hughes get along so well? ┬áThe WAC’s sensational Technicolor restoration does the real combat footage a big favor: minus scratches and dirt, it looks better than ever. Co-starring Don Taylor, Janis Carter, Jay C. Flippen, and Adam Williams. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
