American Guerilla in the Philippines

Lang seems only moderately involved in this WWII flagwaver-after-the-fact, though he rouses himself for the challenge of shooting on the actual locations involved. Power and Ewell are US sailors who get caught up in the Japanese invasion and throw in their lot with the local resistance. It's not a terrible movie, but eliminating the romance with planter's wife Presle and sprucing up the script (from a book by Ira Wolfert) might have made rather more of it.
