Portrays the futility of war and the waste of lives. Interesting to note is the prominent role played by George Shibata, who in reality was a West Point graduate, class of 1951, commissioned in the Air Force, and flew an F-86 Sabre during the Korean War.

Another war movie classic by Lewis Milestone (All Quiet On The Western Front).
This is a true story of one of the incidents near the end of the Korean War. One of the reasons I recommended this for VPL is the current focus on North Korea.
Gregory Peck plays an army captain commanded to retake a seemingly unimportant hill from the North Korean/Red Chinese armies. While he and his men are fighting for their lives, we see the negotiations at the peace talks.
Peck is supported by an excellent cast. Included in the supporting cast s such stalwart actors such as Rip Torn, George Peppard, Robert Blake and former CFL star/ John Ford player Woody Strode,

A well written , well paced script keep the story and the action moving at a good clip.

For the Korean War this is a middling good movie, one of the better produced at a time when the big production money was still devoted to WWII.

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. No falling asleep on this DVD!!!!!

An anti-war story that's too heavy handed and ends up falling flat. Skip this one.

Great movie! This is another one of those classy war movies where the story and import is more important than all the usual nasties! Peck is super!

Maybe this movie was good during the day of its production, but it is dated now. There are much better war movies now.
