Synopsis of Beachhead

Set in the Philippines during WWII, this suspenseful and realistic war drama chronicles the courage of a unit of US Marines as they try to save a plantation owner/Allied spy and his beautiful daughter from the Japanese who have taken over a densely jungled island. The spy has crucial information to relay so the Marines must hurry. Unfortunately, during the rescue, the platoon is ambushed and all but one sailor, the spy and his daughter are killed. Now the three must somehow survive the jungle and make it to safety before it is too late. The story was shot on location in Hawaii.

A Good Cast--But That's All
charles | Hawthorne, FL United States | 06/05/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The stars of this movie, Tony Curtis, Frank Lovejoy and Mary Murphy have appeared in some good movies. Beachead is not one of them.

I think this was a feeble attempt by the screenwriters to create another "Ambush Bay." They failed.

Lot of action

"Not one of the great World War II movies. Lot of action but falls short of being a "GOOD" war movie. Mary Murphy saves this poor movie."
Beachhead is great!!!!
