Description

A crippled C-47 transport crash-lands on a remote Pacific island. For the Marines aboard, World War II becomes smaller, but no less deadly. The atoll is held by a Japanese platoon, also cut off from its command. Debuting director Frank Sinatra stars in this suspenseful war saga, joined by Clint Walker, Tony Bill and Olympic champion Rafer Johnson. After initial bullet-laced confrontations, the Japanese leader (Tatsuya Mihashi) offers to swap water for the aid of Pharmacist Mate Maloney (Sinatra), whom he has mistaken for a doctor. When Maloney amputates the leg of a Japanese soldier and saves his life, peace results. But can it last? There are two sides to every war. None but the Brave skillfully shows the heroism of both.

    Superb 1965 anti-war, war movie which takes no sides and shows both sides as protagonists and antagonists who are human, brave, foolish, arrogant, sensible, clever, brilliant, funny and very much both the best and worst of being human. The characters both understand and misunderstand each other. Marked the directorial debut for Frank Sinatra, Jr who also has a major acting role in the film. Both uplifting and tragic, It is hard to think offhand of any war movie that presents anything this well balanced until the 1981 German movie, Das Boot (The Boat) and the 1993 movie, Gettysburg. Amazing message, considering the Era it was filmed.

    One of the rarely seen war movies done by Frank Sinatra. With an all-star cast (Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Peter Lawford) this is a World War II classic, combining action romantic drama.
