Watch In Harm's Way - Alternative Versions.
In Harm's Way is a film that is historically important in the career of
its star, John Wayne, for two reasons. First, it marked his last
appearance in a Black and White film, and second, it was his last film
before undergoing surgery for lung cancer. It also marks Wayne's first
of three films with Kirk Douglas, and his only film with director Otto
As for the film itself, it is a character-driven story with the World
War II setting used as a backdrop. Like other Preminger pictures of the
time (Exodus, Advise and Consent) it has a big-name cast and an "epic"
feel. Watch for Henry Fonda in a small part as Admiral Nimitz (referred
to as "CINCPAC II"). Wayne plays Rockwell Torrey, a naval officer
blamed for the Pearl Harbor disaster, and demoted. But Nimitz (Fonda)
knows that Torrey is a good commander, and when timorous
politician-turned-Admiral Broderick (Dana Andrews) botches a key
operation, Nimitz turns control over to Torrey, giving him a second
On the personal side, Torrey tries to help his second-in-command, Paul
Eddington (Kirk Douglas), who, as they say, is going through some
personal problems of his own. Torrey also tries to repair his
relationship with his estranged son Jeremiah (Brandon De Wilde), and
finds time to conduct a "twilight romance" with nurse Lieutenant Maggie
Haynes (Patricia Neal).
Two scenes in particular make this film stand out. The first occurs
when Wayne and Neal are alone together in his apartment, the night
before she is about to be shipped out. I won't spoil it for anyone, but
let me say that it is a classic example of how a scene can ooze with
"sex" without actually "showing" a single thing. It's a perfect example
of how this kind of scene can be handled tastefully and professionally.
It's called class, folks, and it is apparently something that modern
Hollywood cannot or will not understand. The second is a discussion on
cowardice between Wayne and Burgess Meredith as the fleet is preparing
to meet the Japanese in battle. Once again, I won't spoil it, but it a
memorable and classic scene, the quote that I have used to head my
review is delivered by Wayne during it.
While In Harm's Way may, at first, seem to be simply a film about the
politics of Navy hierarchy, it is really a film about the personal
lives and struggles of the men and women of World War II.
