IN HARM’S WAY – Captain Torrey John Wayne and nurse Haines Patricia Neal

In Harm’s Way is a 1965 American epic war film produced and directed by Otto Preminger and starring John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Patricia Neal, Tom Tryon, Paula Prentiss, Stanley Holloway, Burgess Meredith, Brandon De Wilde, Jill Haworth, Dana Andrews, and Henry Fonda. It was the last black-and-white World War II epic and the last black-and-white John Wayne film. It received a mixed response over the years as a war story that had a simple story but not a complex one or a great one, a charge leveled against Preminger’s later movies, starting with this one. The screenplay was written by Wendell Mayes based on the novel Harm’s Way by James Bassett. The film recounts the lives of several US naval officers and their wives or lovers while based in Hawaii as the US involvement in World War II begins. The title of the film comes from a quote from American Revolutionary naval hero John Paul Jones: “I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast, for I intend to go in harm’s way.” en.wikipedia.org

Burgy sings a Hawaiian song! Epic!

According to my research real Burgdorf actually sang that weird Hawaiian song in semi-English while in the bunker. Does anyone know the name and the full lyrics of the song? ps I think that the filthy clown who decided that this song can only be in the EXTENDED version of the film should be sent to the Russian front and shot. THIS SONG IS EPIC! IT SHOULD BE IN ALL VERSIONS!

JapaneseAmericans.wmv

Japanese-American internment was the forced relocation and internment by the United States government in 1942 of approximately 110000 Japanese Americans and Japanese residing along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called “War Relocation Camps,” in the wake of Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The internment of Japanese Americans was applied unequally throughout the United States. Japanese Americans residing on the West Coast of the United States were all interned, whereas in Hawaii, where more than 150000 Japanese Americans composed over a third of that territory’s population, 1200 to 1800 Japanese Americans were interned. Of those interned, 62% were American citizens. Ref: en.wikipedia.org Music: m0d by Idlemode
