CRITICS OF "They Were Expendable"

January 08, 2007

The most unfortunate thing about John Ford's excellent, elegiac war film, with a strong turn from John Wayne, was its release date, December 1945, since the war was over.

The real star of the film is the gorgeous, luminous, mostly outdoor black-and-white cinematography.

Surprisingly rich film is one of the best war films ever made.
