Editorial Reviews

Frank Sinatra had a strong movie career for years, but he only directed one film: None but the Brave, a 1965 anti-war picture that turns out to be much more interesting and compelling than its reputation would suggest. On a remote Pacific island, a plane carrying U.S. Marines crash-lands, setting up a tense stand-off with the overlooked Japanese contingent already there. The two sides mirror each other, and eventually a nervous truce takes place. There are many unexpected choices here, including Sinatra's casting of himself as merely part of the ensemble, a weary pharmacist's mate who--in the film's most riveting sequence--must perform an amputation. The movie's narrated by the Japanese commander (Tatsuya Mihashi), and the Japanese actually speak their own language (well, except for the narration) instead of accented Hollywood English. Sinatra's good in it, and so is TV star Clint Walker, a big he-man with a quite approach. (Tommy Sands, then Sinatra's son-in-law, gives a broad but amusing performance as a nerdy by-the-book officer.) The film bears the influence of Bridge on the River Kwai with a little Mister Roberts thrown in, but it has a bitterness about war that goes all the way through to the forceful final title, a reflection of Sinatra's liberal views at the time. Clint Eastwood got a lot of credit for making two films that showed WWII from the American and the Japanese sides, Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, but in a way Sinatra had already done it, and in one movie. It's not a major film, but an honorable effort, and it predates the rash of anti-war counterculture movies by a few years. --Robert Horton

Product Description

A crippled C-47 transport crash-lands on a remote Pacific island. For the Marines aboard, World War II becomes smaller but no less deadly. The atoll is held by a Japanese platoon, also cut off from its command. Debuting director Frank Sinatra stars in this suspenseful war saga, joined by Clint Walker, Tony Bill and Olympic champion Rafer Johnson. After initial bullet-laced confrontations, the Japanese leader (Tatsuya Mihashi) offers to swap water for the aid of Pharmacist Mate Maloney (Sinatra), whom he’s mistaken for a doctor. When Maloney amputates the leg of a Japanese soldier and saves his life, peace results. But can it last? There are two sides to every war. None but the Brave skillfully shows the heroism of both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank Sinatra's None But The Brave August 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Again Frank Sinatra gives another fine performance (he has always been underrated as an actor in my opinion) and he even directed this film! This is an interesting W.W.II film set on an island in the Pacific where small bands of both American and Japanese forces are stranded. This film examines the human sacrifices made in war and questions if there is justification for those sacrifices examined through the camaraderie and reminisces of fellow combatants on both sides. Sinatra, as director, gives Clint Walker a chance to demonstrate his acting abilities in a fine dramatic performance. The stalwart cast also includes Tatsuya Mihashi, Tommy Sands, Tony Bill, Brad Dexter,Takeshi Kato and Sammy Jackson. Listen for an early score composed by John (Johnny) Williams. I always liked this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A memorable,classic film! August 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is a must for all classic film enthusiasts. Released in 1965, it revolves around the story of a platoon of U.S. Marines during WWII whose transport plane is shot down by an enemy fighter plane over an island in the South Pacific occupied by another platoon of Japanese soldiers. Both groups find are marooned and out of communication with their main forces. They engage each other in a series of battles until both sides decide to arrange a truce in order to save the life of a Japanese soldier suffering from gangrene resulting from his wounds. The late Frank Sinatra plays the Marine's medic, who performs a chilling and suspenseful amputation on the wounded Japanese soldier in an attempt to save his life. Clint Walker is the American no-nonsense commander who negotiates the truce with the enemy commander. Both sides agree that if either unit establishes contact with their main force, the truce will end and combat will resume. This film also possesses a splendid music score composed by Johnnie Williams, now known as John Williams who composed the music for all of the Star Wars films along with many other well known films. These include the likes of Superman,Raiders of the Lost Ark,Close Encounters of the Third Kind,Midway,The Cowboys,Jaws,E.T., and the famous Olympic games theme.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this edition January 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great war flick, and the video/audio were very good, but there are no english subtitles for the japanese dialogue, without which you are stuck with the hard-of-hearing subtitles for the whole movie, including ( SINGING ), (LAUGHING ), etc., which to me is very annoying, or you miss a good part of the movie which is in Japanese. I can't believe this was overlooked in the production of this edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars None But The Brave January 27, 2011
By Skip
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Old Blue Eyes produced this movie. Great anti war theme but not preachy and the Japanese are not portrayed as blood thirsty slant eyed devils. Good action but hokey airplane models used in the shoot down scene. Why didn't they caption the Japanese when they talked as the original cut did?I knew what they were saying as I saw it in the movie theatre. Frank's son in law Tommy Sands was great as the young shave tail Lt. Clint Walker tho not a great actor was good as the Captain leader. Bummer ending but that's war. Worth seeing!

>> `None but the Brave' is an ANTI-WAR movie - not a war movie! This film was the Vietnam-era equivalent of `All Quiet on the Western Front' - and an excellent anti-war movie at that. Yet so far, every review completely misses the deliberate, deeper meaning of this outstanding film. Additionally, everyone completely misses the context of the times that this movie was made under. Frank Sinatra - a well-known, active supporter of JFK, directed this movie - and as such this film speaks volumes for Sinatra's often misunderstood and wrongly maligned character - a character of true personal courage. This movie was released in 1965, after the death of JFK (who wanted to curtail US involvement in Vietnam in late 1963)...and it was released during the presidency of LBJ (who escalated the Vietnam War with pitiful, dishonorable results for the US).
>>In a W.W.II setting, small bands of both American and Japanese military forces are stranded on a small, insignificant Pacific island. The leaders of both deadly enemies quickly realize that the only way to survival is for both groups to cooperate, collaborate, care for each other - and renounce war at their level. When taken in total context, this film examines the inherent tragedy and the uncertainty of war for every soldier; as well as the unknown fortunes and misfortunes of war for every soldier. This film also probes the sad and useless mindsets that soldiers are forced go to war with - vs.- the reality of and the capacity for humanity within every soldier at war. The film drives home the undeniable point that the humanity of soldiers in war is a direct product of sage Leadership - no less than any inhumanity of in war is a direct product of despicable directives that fosters the fears and prejudices of every soldier in combat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it May 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Frankie works his magic once again in his rendition of a WWII story, None But the Brave. He made, however, not a 'bang it up, shoot it up, run run run' movie, but one that leaves the viewer pondering the meaning of war. Is it really worth it? The final message of the movie is spelled out in the end for those viewers who weren't willing to seek the deeper meaning for themselves. "Nobody ever wins". Nice going, Frankie, this one deserves more recognition than it's getting.
