UNCERTAIN GLORY (1944) - Errol in France as an escaped prisoner who volunteers to help the Resistance.
OBJECTIVE, BURMA (1945) - An old fashioned action film with the battle of Burma as the centerpiece.
All the films are presented with the WARNER NIGHT AT THE MOVIES option. This feature, that goes back to the days of Warner VHS tapes, their is a way to play the films with shorts, trailers, cartoons, and other typical of the period entertainment shown before the film. You can also watch the shorts individually.
OBJECTIVE BURMA has an audio commentary from historians Rudy Behlmer, Jon Burlingame and Frank Thompson.
