This was Michael Caine’s first speaking role. It has been half a century. This movie stands the test of time. The one major weakness: the portrayal of the minister/missionary.

By Sydney Schanberg John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home.
