James Cagney stars as war hero Admiral William F. "Bull" Halsey in this classic directed by Robert Montgomery. On the verge of retirement, Halsey recalls his most fateful wartime experience: his five-week showdown between himself and Japanese Admiral Yamamoto in 1942. In command of the American naval forces in the Pacific, Halsey scores a crucial, tide-turning victory at Guadalcanal. In concentrating on the participants rather than the battle itself, The Gallant Hours is a character study of a remarkable American.
James Cagney is riveting as the legendary commander of South Pacific forces, Admiral William F. 'Bull' Halsey, in this extraordinary film that depicts his courageous actions during the Japanese war.
