They Were Expendable

1945 NR

During the bleak days following Pearl Harbor, Navy lieutenants John Brickley (Robert Montgomery) and Rusty Ryan (John Wayne) persuade the brass to let them send untried plywood boats against the Japanese fleet. The odds are against them, but what do heroes care about odds? One of director John Ford's pet projects, this war drama is based on the true story of the development of patrol torpedo boats.
