Frank Sinatra added “director’ to his astonishing resume of wonder with this taut anti-war drama that looked back at World War II with a prescient message for a nation currently wading into the morass of Vietnam. A Japanese-American co-production (the first such venture) and adapted from a Japanese story, None But The Brave plays out a parallel tale of two sides enjoying a fragile truce told from the perspective of its narrator (Tatsuya Mihashi, High and Low), a reluctant soldier in command of a group of stranded Japanese soldiers. When a crippled C-47 carrying a complement of Marines crash lands on their island, the War in the Pacific plays out in miniature. Director Sinatra wisely lays back in his role as Pharmacist Mate turned medic Maloney, giving the heavy lifting to Mihashi and Clint Walker (The Dirty Dozen) as the commander of the American forces – eliciting powerful performances from both.
