With the onset of World War II, a trio of young men from San Francisco─conscientious patriot Jeffrey Hunter, callow goof-off Robert Wagner, and intellectual rich kid Bradford Dillman─all find it their duty to sign on with the Marines. The revelations and fates that await them in the crucible of the Pacific Theatre make for compelling drama. Dana Wynter, Hope Lange, Sheree North, France Nuyen, and Mort Sahl also star. 106 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
