Directed by John Farrow
They fought their way to glory! From John Farrow, the acclaimed director of Five Came Back, Calcutta, The Big Clock, Night Has a Thousand Eyes and Plunder of the Sun, comes this thrilling World War II classic starring Brian Donlevy (The Great McGinty), Robert Preston (Beau Geste), Macdonald Carey (Shadow of a Doubt), Albert Dekker (Dr. Cyclops) and William Bendix (Lifeboat). The first realistic American film made about World War II, this hard-hitting drama is based on the incredible true story of a handful of U.S. Marines holding out against an overwhelming Japanese air, land and sea assault and battling their way to glory and into the pages of history. Wake Island received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor (Bendix) and Original Screenplay (W. R. Burnett, Frank Butler).
