Smuggling landed Carnahan in Alcatraz. Smuggling will be his ticket out. It's World War II, and Uncle Sam needs a man of Carnahan's bold talent to sneak vitally needed rubber out of Japanese-held Malaya.
The rare pairing of James Stewart and Spencer Tracy sparks this tale of an intrigue-filled, true-life wartime operation. Tracy portrays tough, edgy Carnahan. Stewart is sly foreign correspondent and Far East expert John Royer, a man with a plan who tells U.S. officials: "With the right kind of money and the wrong kind of man, I can get that rubber out for you." And with its right kind of stars, this brawny classic gets maximum heroics every moment. Adventure and starpower - Sydney Greenstreet in his final film, Lionel Barrymore and Gilbert Roland - are on the map in Malaya.

Commander Frank "Spig" Wead was a pioneer aviator, renowned screenwriter (whose works included John Ford's They Were Expendable) and a man of war. The skies beckoned Spig to action; a crippling injury ultimately left him powerless to act, propelling him to discover the power of his pen. He was talented, driven, flawed, a friend of Ford and the subject of this compassionate biography. John Wayne plays Spig and Ford directs The Wings of Eagles, which also offers a fascinating glimpse into the ways and world of Ford: Ward Bond plays moviemaker John Dodge, a role modelled on Ford. Maureen O'Hara, Wayne's five-time co-star (including Ford's The Quiet Man), and Dan Dailey (of Ford's 1952 What Price Glory) play Spig's indomitable wife, Minnie, and cigar-chomping sidekick "Jughead" Carson.
Jean Simmons, Paul Douglas and Anthony Franciosa star in producer Joe Pasternak's delightful production which was called "the kind of movie audiences hunger for but all too infrequently get". Anne Leeds (Simmons) is a schoolteacher looking for part-time work. She lands a job as a secretary at a nightclub, working for two partners: Rocco (Douglas), a nice, decent type of guy who has Anne's best interests at heart, and Tony (Franciosa), a handsome swinger for whom Anne falls, much to Rocco's chagrin. Adding a bit of spice – and some musical entertainment – to the story are Joan Blondell, Julie Wilson, J. Carrol Naish, ZaSu Pitts and more in supporting roles.
