Friday WWII Flix “Back to Bataan”


WWII – I watched another of the old WWII era movies from my collection the other night, “Back to Bataan“. This film was shot in Back & White and was released in 1945. The major stars are John Wayne and Anthony Quinn. The synopsis per IMDB is:

In 1942, after the fall of the Philippines to the Japanese, U.S. Army Col. Joseph Madden stays behind to organize the local resistance against the Japanese invaders.

Some of the scenes represent real events, while others are fictionalized, that occur on Luzon in the Philipines after the islands fell to the Japanese in 1942. This wasn’t a great film but I enjoyed it. The rating on IMDB is 6.7/10, which corresponds to my feelings about it.
