Screen icon Tony Curtis (The Vikings) blends hard-hitting toughness and humor as a Marine who must battle Japanese soldiers, private demons and fellow Marines in this gripping World War II saga. Bristling with suspense and rugged action, Beachhead is a classic war drama that delivers plenty of emotion-stirring heroics. Four Marines embark on a hazardous island mission to verify reports about a secret Japanese minefield. The intelligence comes from a French planter - who may or may not be an Allied spy - and his beautiful daughter. If their story is true, can the Marines outgun their enemies, make it through the treacherous jungle, and rendezvous with American forces in time to prevent disaster? Hollywood veteran Stuart Heisler (The Glass Key) direct this gripping war adventure featuring strong performances by Frank Lovejoy (The Hitch-Hiker), Mary Murphy (The Wild One), Edward Franz (Hatari!) and Skip Homeier (The Gunfighter).
