The Fighting Seabees (1944) - John Wayne Colorized Version DVD
The Fighting Seabees (1944)
All-American hero John Wayne takes a crew of construction workers and turns them into one of WWII's toughest fighting in this action-packed war classic. After having convinced the Army brass to let his civilians bear arms, Wedge Donovan (Wayne) whips his new troops into combat shape. But when he leads his unit un an all-out assault against the Japanese, Donovan is brought up on court-martial charges and must fight for his life on a new battlefield. The Fighting Seabees offers an entertaining combination of strong supporting performances by Daniel O'Keefe and ravishing, about-to-be superstar Susan Hayward; brawling, big budget action sequences; and an Oscar-nominated score - all of which led Leonard Maltin to give "3 stars" to this spirited saga turned box office bonanza.
