    Both correct.

    A great story behind Hell To Eternity. Based on a true story of Guy Gabaldon who was a Mexican American U.S. Marine who had learned Japanese while living with his Japanese American adoptive family from the age of twelve. At the age of 18, captured 1,500 Japanese during the Battle on Saipan in World War 11.The U.S. Government awarded him the Silver Star and the Navy Cross and was nominated for the Medal Of Honor.

    The two photographs I have attached show the real life Guy Gabaldon with Jeffrey Hunter ( who played him in the film). Vic Damone and David Janssen. Guy Gabaldon was a technical advisor on the film. The second photograph from the film depics the surrendered Japanese Gabaldon captured. Several hundred veterans of the Japanese Imperial Army took part in the re-creation of the battle of Saipan, which was filmed at Okinawa.

    Guy Gabaldon named one of his sons Jeffrey Hunter Gabaldon.

    I recommend a viewing of this film to anyone who hasn't see it.

    You are going well Matt. Both correct. Morning Departure from 1950 and The First Of The Few ( aka Spitfire ) from 1942. See what I can come up with next to see if I can slow you down a little.

    Correct. Wasn't hard after all. Interesting material. Jeffrey Hunter played a lot of real life people in movies and apart from George R.Tweed these include Guy Gabaldon I spoke about recently, Frank James, Owen Brown, Captain Benteen and let us not forget his portrayal of Jesus.

    16 The Red Ball Express
  • HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,011 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
    16 The Red Ball Express


    Correct. Red Ball Express from 1952.

    Following up my clue comment that some controversy surrounds the film.

    Taken from Wikipedia.

    Controversy ( edit )

    Almost 75% of Red Ball Express drivers were African Americans, able-bodied soldiers who had been previously attached to various units for other duties. In the making of the film, Director Budd Boetticher claimed that:

    The army wouldn't let us tell the truth about the black troops because the government figured they were expendable.

    Our government didn't want to admit they were Kamikaze pilots. They figured if one out of ten trucks got through, they'd save Patton and his tanks.
