Plot: During Japan’s invasion of the Philippines in 1942, Capt. Henry Lassiter, Sgt. Bill Dane and a diverse group of American soldiers are ordered to destroy and hold a strategic bridge in order to delay the Japanese forces and allow Gen. MacArthur time to secure Bataan. When the Japanese soldiers begin to rebuild the bridge and advance, the group struggles with not only hunger, sickness and gunfire, but also the knowledge that there is likely no relief on the way.

A GREAT FILM ABOUT THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE…!
A rip roaring war movie from 1943. 13 soldiers from different sects of the military (one is a navy man, another is a pilot) must hold the line in Bataan (a village in the Philippines) before the Japanese army overwhelms them. Almost taking on the airs of a horror movie where our gallant fighters are picked off one by one, this gritty account is well served by the claustrophobic environs & the futility of their mission. Starring Robert Taylor as the sergeant in charge, he’s well supported by his rag tag band of men w/great support by Desi Arnaz (Ricky Ricardo of I Love Lucy), Robert Walker (Strangers on a Train) & Barry Nelson (The Shining) w/special mention to Lloyd Nolan, a deserter who shows his true mettle in a clinch, who steals just about every scene he’s in.
