I watched this old John Wayne movie last nite & had forgotten that it was actually a pretty decent flick. It's a little hokey but still good. It's been years since I last saw it. I was looking closely at the weapons being used. I saw a couple of nice T-99s with pods & dust covers and the actor Paul Fix (he was the sheriff on "The Rifleman" TV series) was carrying a really nice looking T-38 carbine. They had these weapons but still had the Japanese officer using a Luger and one of the Japanese troops was carrying a Gew-98. I wonder what became of those rifles - especially that T-38 carbine!

I watched it (again) twice last week. It is one of the better ones.

There was also a repeat program on the Death March this past week, I don't remember if it was on the History channel or the Military channel. Really well done documentary with interviews of the survivors.

The movie does show the Cabanataun rescue, but I really wasn't aware of this amazing rescue until "The Great Raid" came out. Awesome story!
