The Purple Heart (1944)
Based on the "show trial" of a number of US airmen by the Japanese during WWII. In 1942, Air Force Capt. Harvey Ross (Dana Andrews) flies his B-25 bomber and crew during a crucial bombing raid on Tokyo, but their plane is shot down and they parachute into Japanese captivity. Ross, Lt. Canelli (Richard Conte), Sgt. Clinton (Farley Granger) and the rest of the tight-knit crew are put through an illegal civil trial before a triumvirate of Japanese judges. When secretly offered their lives in exchange for vital military information, the crew must make a unanimous decision.
Starring: Dana Andrews, Farley Granger, Richard Conte
Viewer Review: "This is a beautiful movie. The story is about what happens to the captured crew of an American Army Air Corps bomber in Japan during WWII. The performances of the actors are excellent and deeply felt (remember that it was filmed during the war). Once you have watched the first 30 minutes, you must stay to learn their fate at the hands of the Japanese. Highly recommended."
