Editorial Reviews

They Were Expendable
Supplies are dwindling. Troops are hopelessly outnumbered. But even in defeat there is victory. The defenders of the Philippines ? including PT-boat skippers John Brickley (Robert Montgomery) and Rusty Ryan (John Wayne) will give the U.S. war effort time to regroup after the devastation of Pearl Harbor. Director John Ford's World War II tale knows its battle-scarred topic firsthand. Montgomery was himself a Pacific PT-boat commander and a valorous Bronze Star recipient. Ford filmed the Academy Award?-winning* documentary Battle of Midway. And Wayne creates a portrait of patriotic resolve as only he can. They Were Expendable salutes all who expended themselves during some of the war's bleakest hours. Director John Ford's World War II tale knows its battle-scarred topic firsthand.

Operation Pacific
World War II rages across the Pacific and Lt. Cmdr. Duke E. Gifford is in the thick of it. He evacuates children from enemy-held islands. Oversees the development of torpedoes at Pearl Harbor. And prowls the depths in the submarine Thunderfish for a chance to aim his improved "tin fish" - torpedoes - at the enemy. John Wayne plays Gifford in Operation Pacific. "I'm no theory man. I'm a line officer," Gifford barks. He backs it up with lots of bite in several feverish sea battles. He's also a man of heart with a loving wife at home (fellow Academy AwardO winner* Patricia Neal). Vice Adm. Charles Lockwood, World War II commander of all U.S. Pacific submarines, was technical advisor for this adventure packing real you-are-there thrills!

Flying Leathernecks
It's World War II. Major Dan Kirby (John Wayne) is hard on his marines. His subordinate Captain Carl Griffin thinks the Major is overdoing it. But Kirby proves that there is a method to his madness after all.

Back to Bataan
After the fall of the Philippines to the Japanese in World War II, Col. Joseph Madden (John Wayne) of the U.S. Army stays on to organize guerrilla fighters against the conquerors.

Format: DVD
This is an excellent collection of John Wayne movies that are all set in World War II in the Pacific Theater of Operations. Each film individually stands on it's own as a very good depiction of the dedication, perseverance, sacrifice, and bravery of our United States armed forces fighting incredible odds in the Pacific area of World War II. "They Were Expendable" is set against a backdrop of the early use of the PT Boat, as President John F. Kennedy served on. (JFK himself is NOT depicted). "Flying Leathernecks" is a little more title obvious is about Marine Corps fliers in WW II. "Operation Pacific" is about the submarine warfare aspect of WW II. Back To Bataan" depicts the fight in the Philippines and the way the US Armed forces worked with the Filipino freedom fighters in their effort to resist the Japanese.

They are all good films, each worth the cost of the set, and then some. So grab up the set and get a bargain. You may want to stock up on popcorn and have a weekend film festival.

I purchased this title: John Wayne War: 4 Film Favorites for my favorite John Wayne fan. He tells me the films are clear and bright and he could not detect any "editing" out of favorite scenes. The films are full length, the sound is crisp and clear. I will be purchasing other films for him as gifts.

"They Were Expendable" alone was worth the price of this collection! "Back to Bataan" with its recognition of the heroism of the Filipino's, "Operation Pacific" bringing The Duke together with his 2nd most popular leading lady (Maureen O'Hara will always be the 1st) and a "war is hell" story, & "Flying Leathernecks" are all high water marks for JW & what the USA tho't of itself!
To those whining about their crappy DVD players, get a good one & enjoy great movies!

This set of films is a great value if you're looking for some fine representations of older WWII movies. John Wayne flies, sails, dives, and marches his way through battle after battle, often with the same supporting cast playing slightly different roles.

I found the video and audio to be high quality, and the films enjoyable. Highly recommended.

The movie is great!!!!! The four in one DVD stunk. The quality was poor. Everytime the movie would change to a new scene the movie would freeze. It was a pain to watch. From now on I'd rather have the single DVD.

They Were Expendable may arguably be the best John Wayne WW II movie he ever made. After watching Flying Leathernecks I statrted wondering if I could find an old Hellcat that I could go fly, (It turns out those Grummans are very exspensive and suck lot's of fuel). Realizing that I could never afford to go fly on of those magnificent machines I was forced to come to grips with reality and do what any red blooded american fighting male would do, I watched it again with equal enthusiasim! Operation Pacific is most people favorite, In just thought it was okay. Back to Bataan is good in that it chronicals the effort to and for America by Fillipino citizens.

I'm not a real big John Wayne fan, but these are all entertaining WWII films that cover a variety of subjects, from PT boats and fighter planes to submarines and guerrilla warfare. On the down side, special features are limited to trailers.
