Overview

This is an uneven wartime drama about the exploits of an actual American G.I., Lt. Donald Blackburn Keith Andes, caught in the Philippines during the Japanese occupation. The Lieutenant is forced farther and farther into the brush as he first reluctantly agrees to head up a village contingent of resistance fighters and then has to leave and go into the more remote mountains, and headhunter territory. There he recruits the help of the headhunters, trains them, and leads the capture of several provinces. Before MacArthur can finally invade, the film has been highlighted by exotic jungle scenes, Filipino street scenes, gorgeous landscapes, realistic battle scenes, sensual scenes with two lovely women Paraluman and Susan Cabot in romantic interludes with the Lieutenant, and several other upbeat touches. These pluses, however, do not eliminate the caricatures that pass for characterizations, or a tendency toward a superficial, two-dimensional approach.

    Special Warfare needs Special Forces

    I recall seeing this movie as an 11 year old boy who fantasized battles with an assorted collection of molded plastic soliders. The movie's battle scenes clearly depict the realization that the war in the Phillipines following the surrender at Corregidor would henceforth be waged under special considerations that required extraordinary leaders with special forces...&quot the guerrillas and their undying patriotism&quot .. As some may know, the main character in the movie ultimately became one of the first advisors and leaders that provided the vision and guidance for the creation of the US Army Special Forces..a great legacy to a great group of Americans and Filipinos!
