This is Sinatra's debut as a director, and nothing other than a spectacular bloodbath is the result. The mediocre story has a dedicated Japanese force stranded on a remote island. The war has long passed them by, but the commander, Mihashi, nevertheless rigidly maintains order, drilling his

men constantly and driving them to complete the building of a boat that will take them to their distant headquarters. An American bomber crash-lands on the island after being damaged by a Japanese fighter. The Americans and Japanese do battle but come to a quick truce. Frank Sinatra, a

pharmacist's mate, operates on a seriously injured Japanese soldier, amputating his leg but saving his life. The truce is to continue, agree American commander Walker and Mihashi, but the Japanese insist that whenever one country sends aid, the fighting is to commence once again. The Americans

repair their radio and signal for help. An American destroyer moves into view, and the Japanese attack. They are killed to a man, and only five Americans survive the spectacular killing spree. The direction is poor to awful, and the cast members walk about the island like zombies. The script is

cliche-ridden, and Sinatra's heroics are embarrassing. Only excellent photography by Lipstein saves this posturing mess.
