Review - Flying Leathernecks
It's a typical WWII, pro-army propaganda film, released during the Korean War and the Communist scare. But Wayne does an excellent job portraying a leader who does what he needs to do, even when he doesn't like it. A lot of actual combat footage is included, and most of the fighting scenes are structured to fit this in. The film, or so I'm told on IMDB, is from the Korean War, but you can't tell that in the film.The close-ups of pilots in the cockpits of their planes aren't very convincing.
