Hi Ray, thanks for the the HH posts. Id forgotten that was Virginia Mayo was the "Lady", and never knew that Quist was James Robertson Justice. Been about a year since I last saw this all the way through so ill be breaking it out soon.
Guadalcanal Diary isa favorite or f mine as not only because of the Star Power it has but being very early appearances by favorites of mine-Anthony Quinn and Richard Jaeckel.
Speaking of Escape, I saw that on TCM not long ago and it was actually pretty good. I havent tried finding any stills lately-im STILL awaiting my 17 ATTLAATTD stills to come in before looking for more.
shots from Battleground...
have you seen this one, carl..
Classic scenes all. I never heard of: The Enemy general w/ Van Johnson? I have one movie still with Van Johnson in it as a German officer-and is sitting next to Kerwin Matthews-who I think was a Waffen SS officer. Its called: The Last Battalion or something like that. The uniforms are a mixture of real and real bad faked stuff. Never seen it before but would like to.
Snow and Fire
Dont know of the ones above but they look like decent movies to watch/.
cant say I've heard of it either, carl, but it looks o.k.
From “The Man Who Never Was” (1956)

On July 10, 1943, combined American and British Commonwealth troops invaded Sicily. Nine days later, the first air raid on Rome sent a signal that the Allies were on the move. This march north through Italy is the subject of Rossellini’s Paisà. Told in six discrete episodes, with newsreel footage of combat as a bridge between the stories, Rossellini is here able to expand the scale of his narrative beyond the confines of the Italian capital. The success of Rome, Open City in the United States made it possible for him to exploit a much larger budget and a broader scope. Partly funded by US sources brought together by a WWII GI, producer Rod Geiger, who had acquired the American rights to the first film, and who had re-invested his money back into Paisà, MGM acquired the US rights; it is more than a bit surprising to see the MGM Studio credit in front of the main title.
