A film review of the movie "Bataan," and a comparison of its reality with the experiences of E.L. Sledge, in his book "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa." The paper starts with a critical review of the movie and proceeds to provide the writer's own opinions.
From the Paper:""We'll stay as long as we can stand up." The first man to die in the group thirteen men who are thrown together to defend a dying island, sums up the pervading force in the MGM film "Bataan," released in 1943. With his death, the squad is effectively without a leader, and they plunge into the jungle, determined to hold off the entire Japanese army, so General MacArthur can make his escape from the doomed island.
Starring Robert Taylor, George Murphy, Thomas Mitchell, Lloyd Nolan, Desi Arnaz, Robert Walker, and several others, this film, directed by Tay Garnett, attempts to show the realities of war, while showing American's how her fighting men were strong and brave, down to the last man."
