This is a 1960 World War II film directed by Phil Karlson. This film is about the Battle of Saipan . It is supposed to be based on the true experiences of Marine hero Pfc called Guy Gabaldon (played by Hunter)---a Los Angeles Hispanic boy raised in the 1930s by a Japanese American foster family. During the bloody campaign for the island, Gabaldon convinces the Japanese general to order approximately 1000 Japanese soldiers and 500 family members to surrender to the U.S. This story might be true, but I've never heard nor read this historic event throughout my school days. I can hardly believe this story because Guy's Japanese is so poor that I cannot understand him. In order to convince the native Japanese audience to believe the story, the protagonist should be able to speak Japanese properly.
