"Gung Ho!"

The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders

1943

Ray Enright
Director

The story of the US Marine raid on Makin Island in August 1942.

Early war time flag waiver that has worn fairly well (modern day war films have the same cliches). Some big explosions and a performance from a very cool Robert Mitchum that has future star all over it.
