Description
Machine-gun action and suspense are the backdrop of a love story in Jungle Patrol (1948), a tense tale of eight young USAF flyers stationed in New Guinea. Their orders: to intercept Japanese bombers headed for Australian objectives. The assignment in 1954's The Silent Raiders (scored by the great Elmer Bernstein) amounts to "kill or be killed." Just prior to D-Day, a seven-man unit arrives on the French coast with orders to help wipe out a German communications center three miles inland. The DVD also includes vintage WWII footage (both European and Pacific) culled from the Combat Bulletin archives.

"Contains two seldom-seen low-budget gems…. Jungle Patrol is a well-acted quickie from 1948 that focuses on the men (and one visiting woman) who inhabit a remote island airfield in the Southern Pacific…. Silent Raiders (1954) is a surprisingly atmospheric flick … that probably inspired later 'suicide mission' WWII films like The Dirty Dozen….. All in all, VCI's WWII Double Feature is a great pick. It has everything I love in a classic war film — and the acting was fine enough all-around that I never had to ask 'Where in the world did they dig up that clown?'"—Cinema Sentries
