Description

A Yank In The RAF Power and Betty Grable star in a high-flying wartime romance. Tyrone Power and Betty Grable are captivating in this romantic WWII drama. When slick, money-motivated pilot Tim Baker (Power) takes a high-paying job ferrying bombers across the Atlantic, he meets up with Carol (Grable), an old flame who sparks enough new heat that Baker joins England's R.A.F. just to be near her. But Carol is also pursued by another pilot - Baker's superior officer! And when Baker must begin flying bombing missions, life suddenly takes on far more meaning than ever before. Featuring actual aerial combat footage and Grable's classic musical numbers, A Yank In The R.A.F. is an engagingly dramatic love story. • Stars: Betty Grable, Tyrone Power Jr. • Directed by: Henry King • YOP: 1941 • Runtime: 97 minutes The Desert Fox James Mason delivers a strong performance in the title role of this sympathetic study of Field Erwin Rommel. In the early 40’s, Rommel’s juggernaut Arfika Korps dominated North Africa. But as the tide turned and he came to the painful realisation that his Fuhrer, to whom he has sworn allegiance, was destroying Germany, his ingrained sense of duty pushed him into a conspiracy against Hitler. Focusing on the later part of Rommel’s career, the film portrays him as a dedicated soldier, sympathetic to his men and devoted to the art of waging war in a dignified, disciplined manner. Co-starring Jessica Tandy as Rommel’s wife and Cedric Hardwicke as another anti-Hitler conspirator, THE DESERT FOX is an intimate look at one of the most respected military tacticians of modern times, openly admired by both those who followed him into combat and those who faced him on the field of battle. • Stars: James Mason, Cedric Hardwicke, Jessica Tandy, Luther Adler, Everett Sloane, Leo G. Carroll • Directed by: Henry Hathaway • YOP: 1951 • Runtime: 85 minutes Guadalcanal Diary Two-time Academy Award(R) winner Anthony Quinn stars in this incredible account of the battle for a vital Pacific base during World War II. Concentrating on the personal lives of those involved, the film takes viewers through the preparations, landing and initial campaign on Guadalcanal during WWII. The characters include a marine sergeant (Lloyd Nolan), an army chaplain (Preston S. Foster), an enlistee from Mexico (Anthony Quinn), and a regular "joe" from Brooklyn (William Bendix). The narration is provided by an off-screen war correspondent character, played by Reed Hadley. Realistic battle scenes are capped by a dramatic, stunning victory in the campaign that contrasts to the real-life disappointment of the armed forces' early effort in the South Pacific. • Stars: Lloyd Nolan, Anthony Quinn, Richard Jaeckel • Directed by: Lewis Seiler • YOP: 1943 • Runtime: 89 minutes Crash Dive This romantic adventure, set during World War II, features two Navy men vying for the love of the same woman. Tyrone Powers stars as Lieutenant Ward Stewart, a rakish Navy man recently assigned to a new post on a submarine. While on a train headed to Washington D.C., Stewart meets teacher Jean Hewlitt (Anne Baxter), quickly falls for her, and eventually succeeds in gaining her affection. What Stewart doesn't know is that Hewlitt is the girlfriend of his commanding officer, Lt. Commander Dewey Connors (Dana Andrews). After a dangerous mission is completed, Stewart asks Hewlitt to marry him, and she accepts. Further complications develop when both officers set off together on a dangerous mission to destroy a Nazi base - after Connors discovers that his subordinate has been pursuing his women. CRASH DRIVE is a fine drama, presenting a love triangle that truly tests the conflicts between romantic love and loyalty to one's friends and one's country. • Stars: Tyrone Power, James Gleason, Harry Morgan, Anne Baxter • Directed by: Archie Mayo • YOP: 1943 • Runtime: 101 minutes Heaven Knows Mr Allison Stranded on a Pacific Island, an Irish Nun (Kerr) and a heroic Marine sergeant live a life of constant peril, hiding from Japanese troopers who have a base on the island. Eventually, the sergeant falls deeply in love with the religious woman, which compels her to question her vow. • Stars: Robert Mitcham, Deborah Kerr • Directed by: John Huston • YOP: 1957 • Runtime: 107 minutes
