They Were ExpendableIt's David vs. Goliath on the seas when Rusty Ryan and John Brickly lead the Navy's new PT boats into the Battle of the Philippines during the early days of WWII. Outgunned and outmanned, the skippers and their crews defy the odds and prove the effectiveness of their highly maneuverable boats. They hit, they run, they return to fight again - and they play a vital role in the holding action that buys valuable time for the U.S. after the crippling attack on Pearl Harbor. Montgomery and Wayne turn in acclaimed performances in this powerful film that is widely recognized as one of director John Ford's all-time greatest works. Scripted by naval Commander Frank Wead and based on the novel by William I. White, it is one of the bestcontemporary films about the war.Operation PacificWorld War II rages across the Pacific and Lt.

I'm a line officer," Gifford barks. He backs it up with lots of bite in several feverish sea battles. He's also a man with a loving wife at home (fellow Academy Award winner Patricia Neal). Vice Admiral Charles Lockwood, World War II commander of all U.S. Pacific submarines, was technical advisor for this adventure packing real you-are-there thrills!Flying LeathernecksMarine fighter squadron VMF 247 is in the thick of it on Guadalcanal.
