Synopsis


Go for Broke!
Robert Pirosh wrote and directed this little-known World War II drama from MGM that commemorates the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a combat unit composed of Japanese-Americans who fought valiantly during World War II, with many of the actual veterans of the combat unit appearing as actors in the film. For the most part, the film follows the standard Battleground plot line -- there is Sam (Lane Nakano), the wise sergeant; Chick (George Miki), a lazy private; the enervating Ohhara (Henry Oyasato); and Tommy (Henry Nakamura), a crack sharpshooter. Van Johnson plays Lt. Michael Grayson, a bigoted Texan assigned to shape these men into a fighting unit and who learns to respect their valor and bravery. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

    Great movie, love the story of the 442nd in World War II however this particular transfer is very bad. The picture quality is ok, a little blurred but the sounds is completely washed out. I have an old VHS copy of this movie that is in way better shape but I know over time it will be like this DVD.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
