JOHN WAYNE WAR COLLECTION PG

£4.99

Product description

Four classic John Wayne war films.
In 'Sands of Iwo Jima' (1949), hard-bitten sergeant John M. Stryker (Wayne) earns the enmity of the recruits he trains for action in the Pacific during World War Two. New recruit Peter Conway (John Agar)'s dislike for his commander turns to respect, however, when the latter saves him from a grenade. The squad are forced to show their mettle when they are sent into Iwo Jima to take Mount Suribachi whilst under constant fire from the Japanese.
In 'Back to Bataan' (1945), Colonel Joseph Madden (Wayne) helps liberate the Japanese prison camp Cabanatuan on the island of Bataan, only to remain there in order to organise a guerilla movement against the enemy. Freedom fighters led by Captain Anders (Anthony Quinn) help the Americans in their war against the Japanese.
In 'Flying Tigers' (1942), soon after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Squadron Leader Gordon (Wayne) commands the US Flying Tigers squad against Japan's fleet of bombers, but resentment grows amongst his team when one pilot's glory-seeking efforts place the mission at risk.
Finally, in 'Jet Pilot' (1957), at the height of the Cold War, relations between the United States of America and the Soviet Union are very frosty indeed. However, ace American pilot Colonel Shannon (Wayne) finds himself thawing a little when he meets Anna (Janet Leigh), a beautiful young woman from the wrong side of the Iron Curtain. Shannon attempts to curb his desires for the sake of national security, but a cross-cultural romance between the pair soon ensues.
Good condition.
