This exciting war film details the heroism of the U.S. Navy fliers who fought during the Korean War. Lieutenant Harry Brubaker (William Holden), a naval reserve officer, reluctantly leaves his wife (Grace Kelly) and children behind after he's called back into service. Soon Brubaker receives his orders: to bomb five bridges that are of vital importance to the enemy. Despite his unhappiness at being back in action and his doubts about U.S. soldiers risking their lives on such a dangerous mission, Lieutenant Brubaker puts his life on the line to make sure the effort is a success. Directed by Mark Robson (EARTHQUAKE, VALLEY OF THE DOLLS) and starring, in addition to Holden and Kelly, Fredric March and Mickey Rooney, THE BRIDGES AT TOKO-RI is a standout film, based on the thrilling novel by James A. Michener. (Note courtesy of Paramount Pictures.) DIR Mark Robson; SCR Valentine Davies, from the novel by James A. Michener; PROD William Perlberg, George Seaton. U.S., 1954, color, 102 mins.
