They Were Expendble is the better (more memorable) film of the two.
It is my understanding that PT's did not sink any war ships during WWII.
A fib in this film that omitted would have told the better story.
I think the film is too long and that director John Ford really
beat the theme of expendabilty to a fine mash.
Flying Leathernecks is a good war movie, plenty of action,
and inteligently left the romance on the home front unlike another film I
recently purchased, The Hunters.
PS One reviewer complained of getting only one disk, the product description lists two.There is one movie on each side of my one disk.
I got this item in a timely manner as always with Amazon and would always trust them to send the item that was discribed. five stars on the quality of movie, five stars on the delivery and five stars all they way around!
Flying Tigers is strictly make believe, but based on the famous Flying Tiger squadron of American mercenary pilots fighting for China before the U.S. entry into the war. Wayne plays the commander of this collection of patriots, get rich quick, egomanaics, and flers for the honor of flying pilots. At the same time he is having a relationship with a nurse. The film was made during the war and was strictly for propoganda, but has excellent combat footage and a fair story line.
