Synopsis

When tough disciplinarian Major Dan Kirby (John Wayne) is put in charge of a marine fighter squadron in the South Pacific, he is not popular with the men, who were expecting the more popular Captain Carl Griffin (Robert Ryan) to be promoted. Discovering a shortage of planes and pilots, Kirby nonetheless manages to whip his reluctant men into fighting shape. Renowned auteur Nicholas Ray directs.
