Review By Andy Cooper,Leader-Post,January 2007

Considered one of Errol Flynn’s best movies, Objective, Burma! was a controversial war film when released in 1945.

In particular, the British hated the fact that their contribution to the Allied campaign against the Japanese in Burma was completely ignored by the story in favour of the usual American heroics.

No matter, Objective Burma! remains a stirring account of a small group of American paratroopers assigned to destroy a Japanese radar station deep in the jungle.

Franz Waxman’s Oscar-nominated score evokes the excitement of the mission, the exotic jungle environment and the rising tension as the Americans, led by Flynn, desperately try to walk to freedom after their mission. Warner Bros. recently released the movie on DVD.
