Merrill's Marauders (DVD)Burma, 1944: The 5307th commanded by Brigadier General Frank D. Merrillis deep behind Japanese lines marching through the dense, unforgivingjungle. They've gone undetected--so far--but the trek has taken its tollon the gaunt, fatigued soldiers. Then, arriving at their destination,the men endure the sheer hell of war, only to be ordered on anotherforced march through the jungle ... another mission for the hard-bittenmen dubbed Merrill's Marauders.]]> The theatrical trailer included in this DVD release of Merrillâ€™s Marauders, touting its depiction of "World War IIâ€™s most fabulous jungle fightersâ€¦ (as) they showed the world what the American soldier can do," makes director Samuel Fullerâ€™s 1962 film sound like jingoistic propaganda, but itâ€™s considerably more than that. The year is 1944; the U.S. Armyâ€™s 5307th Composite Unit, a 3000-strong outfit under the command of Brigadier General Frank Merrill (Jeff Chandler), has already been fighting the occupying Japanese forces in the wilds of Burma for several months when theyâ€™re assigned to march hundreds of miles through jungles, swamps, and mountains to Myitkyina, a town of considerable strategic importance and the gateway to India, where the Allies fear the Japanese and Nazis will meet and consolidate their forces. Mission impossible? So it would seem, as the men are exhausted, disease-ridden, disheartened, and ill-equipped; his second in command, Lt. Stockton ...

Manufacturer: Warner Home Video Brand: Warner Brothers Model: 1000110513
DESPERATE JOURNEY Allied airmen shot down over Germany fight their way back to England. ERROL FLYNN leads RONALD REAGAN and other flyboys in a rousing wartime spirit-lifter. EDGE OF DARKNESS Theyâ€™re everyday citizens â€“ and extraordinary heroes. Flynn and ANN SHERIDAN rally Norwegians against the Nazi occupiers of their once-peaceful village. NORTHERN PURSUIT Icebound wilds and ice-blooded Nazis! Canadian officer Flynn infiltrates a cadre of saboteurs and guides them toward their destinationâ€¦and into the unraveling of their scheme. UNCERTAIN GLORY The Gestapo decree: 100 Frenchmen will die if a resistance leader fails to turn himself in. Condemned French prisoner Flynn volunteers to pose as the wanted man. Powerful heroism! OBJECTIVE, BURMA! Pinned down in the jungle â€“ and fighting back! Flynn commands a stranded paratrooper patrol in this gritty, volatile tale noted for its battlefield authenticity. Unlike so many boxed-set tributes to actors, this one's actually got a tight, logical theme: Errol Flynn Adventures offers five World War II pictures made at Warner Bros. during Flynn's reign as a top leading man. Four of the films were directed by one of Flynn's favored collaborators, the robust Raoul Walsh, and all of them have an urgent wartime commitment that puts them in a zone between entertainment and propaganda.
