Just a good movie. Not your typical Marines in WWII movie.

One of my favorites.

I remember my father telling me, he was in the Marines st the time it came out, and he and his fellow Marines going to see it.

Stars Aldo Ray, who was a UDT Frogman in real life - before playing a Marine and Green Beret.
Along with Sterling Hayden, Silver Star recipient (Patrick O'Donnell's First SEALs devotes several pages to the WWII veteran and actor who later played Captain McCluskey in The Godfather).
