They Were Expendable | Chicago Reader

They Were Expendable

John Ford poured his accumulated emotions about World War II, a combination of personal bitterness and benign acceptance of duty, into this moving account of the fortunes of a PT-boat squadron as its ranks are thinned out up to the retreat from the Philippines. John Wayne, Ward Bond, and Robert Montgomery star in this 1945 example of the way Ford brilliantly intertwined intensely personal stories with magnificently epic narrative. 135 min.
