Back to Bataan

Edward Dmytryk directs John Wayne in the rousing World War II action-adventure film Back to Bataan. The film makes its debut on DVD with this bare-bones disc. The film is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. While this is far from the most lavish DVD ever produced, fans of the genre as well as of Wayne should find the disc quite worthwhile.
