A deadly barrage of "incoming mail" draws nearer. The frontlines are moving, so Mobile Army Surgical Hospital 8666 must also move. And quickly. The wounded are evacuated. Tents are struck and loaded. And if there's no tim to strike it, burn it. Then, like circus wagons rolling through hell, the medical convoy risks ambush as it bumps and rumbles to its next encampment.
Humphrey Bogart and June Allyson star and Richard Brooks (Elmer Gantry, In Cold Blood) scripts and directs this stark tale of love and war that matches M*A*S*H in setting but not in tone. Allyson plays a wide-eyed nurse who arrives in Korea oblivious to the dangers. Bogey plays a careworn surgeon who numbs his feelings with booze and romantic dalliance. "Three world wars in one lifetime," he says. "Maybe whiskey's as much a part of our life as war." Year: 1953 Director: Richard Brooks Starring: Humphrey Bogart, June Allyson Special Feature: Original Theatrical Trailer
