Operation Pacific Details


Set during WW II, this film casts [[Performer~P116130~John Wayne~johnwayne]] as Duke Gifford, two-fisted submarine commander. [[Performer~P52027~Patricia Neal~patricianeal]] co-stars as Mary Stuart, Duke's former wife. Duke's hopes of staging a reconciliation are constantly interrupted by a series of life-threatening circumstances, capped by the rescue of a group of orphans from a Japanese-held island. Featured in the cast are old [[Performer~P116130~John Wayne~johnwayne]] cronies [[Performer~P7236~Ward Bond~wardbond]] and [[Performer~P106037~Jack Pennick~jackpennick]], as well as TV's future Jim Bowie, [[Performer~P24193~Scott Forbes~scottforbes]]. Operation Pacific might prove a fascinating companion feature to 1964's [[Feature~V24497~In Harm's Way~inharmsway]], which reteamed [[Performer~P116130~John Wayne~johnwayne]] and [[Performer~P52027~Patricia Neal~patricianeal]] in another WW II Navy yarn. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
