Objective, Burma! 07/31/21
Errol Flynn goes to war! One of the last major direct-combat pictures to come out of Hollywood during the war, Raoul Walsh’s ode to the jungle fighters in Burma is a finely-crafted show that lets loose a powerful, almost frightening blast of anti-Japanese rage. Errol Flynn earned his pay slugging it out through the swamps, George Tobias provides the Brooklyn humor and Henry Hull the outrage over combat atrocities. And the English were none too happy either, claiming that the movie made it look as if America had done the heavy fighting in what was largely a Brit field of battle. With Mark Stevens, Richard Erdman, Anthony Caruso & Warner Anderson. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
