I already have the VHS. I was about 11 years old when I first saw it from big screen. Waiting for the DVD to be available.It is one of my most favorites of all films.

this film begins in a lighthearted vein as the melting pot platoon is introduced and affectionate insults are bandied about typical of combat films of this period. don't be fooled.it gradually evolves into a tense,grim and exciting portrait of men in war.the reasons men fight and the price of war,the two key componets of a cerebral action movie,are skillfully explored by director,cinematographer and cast.[raoul walsh and james wong howe perhaps errol flynn's finest hour].this somewhat overlooked film is a fitting tribute to the men who fought in the forgotten theater of ww2.

This is Flynn at his best! The characters 'come alive' in this WWII movie. I have seen this movie MANY times, and, will watch it many more! Some parts of it will make you laugh; some will, abso, make you cry...and scream...its' that good. I ordered this DVD when I saw B&N had it. So glad I did. It is as I remember it way back. Excellent! Some 'critics' poopoo it because...(fill in here). I enjoyed it then; I enjoy it now. Kudos, again, to the many departments at B&N. Once, again, 'they' lived up to my expectations in delivering this DVD to me. I rate them 5 Stars, along with the movie! Thanks, again, to B&N for an excellent job!

Objective Burma is a picture about a big part of WW-11 in Burma. I was 14 when that war ended. Each movie about the war has something in the story that actually happened, I think.
