Gung Ho DVD
GUNG HO! is the true story of a special battalion picked from the toughest men in the U. S Marines and given the dangerous mission of recapturing Japanese-held islands in the South Pacific during World War II. Hollywood tough guy Randolph Scott stars as their commander, Colonel Thorwald, who recruits and trains the soldiers–collectively known as “Carlson’s Raiders”–in all imaginable forms of combat, culminating in an explosive battle sequence at the Japanese stronghold on Makin Island. The film, which also features a great performance by legendary icon Robert Mitchum, introduced the expression “gung ho” to the American vernacular and was an important piece of morale-raising propaganda during U. S. involvement in World War II.
