Movies American Guerrilla in the Philippines (1950, Tyrone Power, Tom Ewell) Published 7 months ago on October 24, 2018 Fritz Lang made five war movies in his long career, four during or just after World War II and this one, released as America was about to embark on the Korean War. Based on a true story, it stars Tyrone Power as Ensign Chuck Palmer, the leader of a group of US servicemen left stranded in the Philippines in 1942 when General MacArthur withdrew from the Japanese invasion. Teaming up with the local resistance, he and his group, including his buddy Jim Mitchell (Tom Ewell), manage to evade the occupying forces, even setting up a makeshift radio station to bolster morale (as well as keeping track of Japanese fleet movements). Despite the wartime setting, Palmer still finds time for romance with Jeanne Martinez (Micheline Presle), the widow of a local resistance hero. production details USA | 105 minutes | 1950 Director: Fritz Lang Script: Lamar Trotti, Ira Wolfert, cast Jack Elam as The Speaker Tom Ewell as Jim Mitchell Tyrone Power as Ensign Chuck Palmer Micheline Presle as Jeanne Martinez Robert Patten as Lovejoy Tommy Cook as Miguel Juan Torena as Juan Martinez Robert Barrat as Gen.
