  • Men in War

    1957. USA. Directed by Anthony Mann. Screenplay by Philip Yordan. With Robert Ryan, Aldo Ray, Robert Keith. "Tell me the story of the foot soldier, and I will tell you the story of all war." So begins Mann's brilliant and defiantly unheroic portrait of ground combat. Stranded in hostile territory during the early stages of the Korean War, an infantry patrol engages with an unseen enemy in battles as desperate, tense, and maddening as any created by Samuel Fuller, Lewis Milestone, or Stanley Kubrick. Preserved by the Cinémathèque Française, Paris. 102 min.
