First, a gritty and downright unusual WWII drama focuses on a recruit who seems to have had an emotional breakdown which leads to a crying outburst. He gets no sympathy from his tough sergeant, who is also jealous of the soldier's Bronze Star. Rather than getting a doctor, the sarge allows him to "escape," and he runs rampant through Italy. Carl Crow, Frank Leo, and Beach Dickerson star. Then, two American soldiers, a Christian and a Jew trapped on a Pacific isle, must make peace with each other before they can meet the challenge of the Japanese, who plan to bomb their outpost. With Richard Devon and Ron Kennedy. 144 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; bonus shorts; theatrical trailers.
