OBJECTIVE, BURMA!

1945 / 142min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: RAOUL WALSH

CAST: ERROL FLYNN, JAMES BROWN, WILLIAM PRINCE

Errol Flynn, who collaborated a total of seven times with director Raoul Walsh, here stars as the leader of a platoon of U.S. Army paratroopers on a mission behind enemy lines in WWII Burma. DP James Wong Howe does career-high work here in the climactic night battle, and Walsh is fighting fit throughout, delivering a lean, mean, barnstorming war story based loosely on the real-life exploits of Brigadier General Frank Merrill.
