Merrill's Marauders

( 4 )

Overview

Jeff Chandler stars as American brigadier-general Merrill, commanding a regiment in Burma during World War II. Surrounded on all sides by the Japanese, Merrill's Marauders nonetheless accomplish their objective-only to be ordered into another mission with barely a chance to breathe.

Overview

Jeff Chandler stars as American brigadier-general Merrill, commanding a regiment in Burma during World War II. Surrounded on all sides by the Japanese, Merrill's Marauders nonetheless accomplish their objective-only to be ordered into another mission with barely a chance to breathe. Again and again this happens, and again and again the Marauders remain fiercely loyal to the dauntless Merrill. This "war doesn't take vacations" theme is a common one running through the combat films of director Samuel Fuller; only the censorship strictures of 1962 prohibit Fuller from fully illustrating the sheer Hell that was the Pacific War. Adapted by Fuller and producer Milton Sperling from a novel by Charlton Ogburn Jr., Merrill's Marauders represented Jeff Chandler's last film work.

    My late father-in-law and one of my uncles were in this outfit.

    My late father-in-law and one of my uncles were in this outfit. My bride will be thrilled to see the movie, as will our 21-year old son who adored his grandfather. He survived it (2 Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star) only to get out of the army after his 4-year hitch and then spent 16+ years in the USMC. Being a retired Marine myself helped me gain some insight into his life and we had a good relationship (he wasn't the easiest guy to get along with). He is now resting at Arlington National Cemetary with my brides older sister Linda. If the movie is 1/10th as good as the stories he told it'll be worth every penny. God bless America and her fighting warriors who make freedom ring. Semper Fidelis Ed. Someday I'll be your relief guarding the streets of heaven. In the meantime it is my distinct pleasure to love your daughter with all my heart.
