Directed by
Fritz Lang

Fritz Lang made five war movies in his long career, four during or just after the Second World War and this one, released as America was about to embark on the Korean War. Based on a true story, it stars Tyrone Power as Ensign Chuck Palmer, the leader of a group of US servicemen left stranded in the Philippines in 1942, when General MacArthur withdrew from the Japanese invasion. Teaming up with the local resistance, he and his group, including buddy Jim Mitchell, evade the occupying forces and set up a makeshift radio station to bolster morale. Despite the wartime setting, Palmer still finds time for romance with Jeanne Martinez, the widow of a local resistance hero.
