John Wayne is the leader of a squadron of American pilots-for-hire in China, pre-Pearl Harbor. The men are wildly outnumbered by the Japanese, and also deal with difficulties within their own ranks. Excellent air combat scenes, some taut military-court drama, and even a little romance between Wayne and a lovely British nurse.
While searching for the brother he has been separated from since childhood, John Wayne forms a vigilante group to catch a band of vicious outlaws. While on the trail, he comes face-to-face with his brother, the leader of the gang.
Called Wayne's best B-movie, this buddy tale based on Zane Grey's novel is about a cowboy who tracks down a cattle rustler and the grateful rancher who then saves him from a card shark.
