Go For Broke (1951)
Far less preachy then I just made it out to be this great little film is wonderful war film about a bunch of guys who just want to fight for their country. What I like is that while the film deals with how the Japanese were looked upon as potential enemies, the film very quickly takes the stance that they are just guys and then proceeds to hit many of the war film cliches with abandon so that you completely forget that there is a message here. Its done so well that you forget the message and just enjoy the story.
By any war movie standards this is a good movie.
