(I write books, serve my country, love my wife and daughter, and believe in the Resurrection.)
I’d missed this one for years (while seeing just about all of Reagan’s other films), but when I finally caught it about twenty years ago, I was surprised at how much fun it was. Somehow I was expecting a slightly stuff war opus, but it’s really just a fun, zesty B-film with a solid cast and decent budget.

Thanks! I’ve always enjoyed that movie.
One of Errol Flynn’s best non-swashbuckling movies.

(Had FDR been GOP, there would have been no World Wars, just "The Great War" and "Roosevelt's Wars".)
You beat me to it, so I’ll settle for “Now for Australia, and a crack at those Japs.”
