In Harm’s Way. 1965. USA. Directed by Otto Preminger. Screenplay by Wendell Mayes, based on the book by James Bassett. With John Wayne. Kirk Douglas, Patricia Neal, Tom Tryon. 138 min.
Captain “Rock” Torrey (Wayne) is still suffering since the devastation at Pearl Harbor, and the navy won’t let him forget the ravages and humiliation of that attack. As usual, Patricia Neal is heartbreakingly perfect as the nurse who attends to Torrey and the young Lt. McConnel (Tryon).
