This is an old-fashioned war movie from the 40's which is nonetheless interesting because it is based on a true story. I remember studying this example of guerilla warfare in ROTC in the 60's. The story represents the ideal situation where you have a truly ruthless occupying Army (the Japanese in the Philippines) and a small cadre of professional soldiers recruiting and training the locals to fight. Not only is the movie black and white, the good buys and bad guys are similarly well defined. This ad hoc military force tied down a lot of occupying Japanese troops who did not know the territory and were not trained to fight an army that would strike by surprise and disappear back into the jungle.

Did not dwell too long on first reviewer's ad for this film. Now, let's go to the film itself and a real review. Andes seems to be so busy romancing Susan Cabot and Philipino glamor beauty Paraluman that he doesn't find much time to organize and lead his troops of civilians and headhunters to defeat the Japanese. The script in fact seems to overplay the bravery of his female soldiers and spies more than his own--after all, Paraluman is captured and dies in a sacrifice for their victory. His speech while accepting a medal from Gen. McArthur about having "learned to love another race" was one of the film's best points. The trailer did go overboard in promoting risque scenes and suggesting more was there than ever really was.

This is not the greatest war film ever made and doesnt have the greatest actors and actresses but I give it 5 stars because of its rare subject matter, i e World War II Philippines fighting occupying Japanese invaders. Based on the true story of a stranded American soldier involved in the fighting. Similar to the John Wayne film BACK TO BATAAN but that film was more fictionalised.

It is a low budget film, which is more like a wartime propaganda film than a celebration of the courage, capabilities, and contribution of the men’s exploits, and historical acts, which helped the allies to win the war.

I got what i had expected. A grade B movie about a book I had just finished. It was a classic love in war movie. I am glad I bought a used one.
