Description
First the Pearl. Then the whole Pacific. Soon after the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor, soldiers of the Rising Sun unleash their fury on other U.S. outposts. Among their targets: the Philippines, whose defenders include the 26th Cavalry, an underequipped American unit better suited for playing polo than fighting mechanized war. Out of this backdrop storms Once Before I Die, a strife-filled tale of a beauty amid the beasts of war. Ursula Andress, who burst to prominence as James Bond’s bikini-clad island girl in Dr. No, plays the beauty. She’s Alex, a lone woman forced by circumstance to accompany the cavalrymen (including John Derek, Richard Jaeckel and Ron Ely) in a desperate march across the jungle. Ahead lies the hoped-for safety of Manila. Behind: the steadily advancing invaders. In between: the chaos and brutality of a war which defies all escape…and claims all innocence.

Comments about this product:

This film is memorable due to the superb cinematography which was the hallmark of John Derek's films. The film is not a great film but it has moments that show it could have been a wonderful matinee movie of the sixties. All that being said, there are images in this film that will remain in your memory. Beautiful Ursula Andress who was married to Derek at the time. Richard Jaeckel as an over-zealous military officer and polo ponies that were a major part of the last cavalry outposts the US Army still maintained. It is worth a view just for nostalgia sake if you remember when movies dared to be romantic and escapist.
