None But The Brave (1965)


Frank Sinatra directs himself, Clint Walker and Tatsuya Mihashi in this WWII parable about a Japanese and an American set of soldiers abandoned on an island together.

Sinatra’s only work as a director is a relaxed and prepossessing affair. He gives equal light, screentime and sympathy to the Japanese battalion, even allowing room for their culture and customs to shine through. There’s a couple of duff performances in the ensemble and it ain’t exactly subtle but all in all this is a decent little anti-war movie.
