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
