Love Blond Steve Forrest
- Steve Lobo
Love this man. Good movie, early in Steve Forrest's career.
Army, NOT Marines
- bob morris
Take the high ground is about ARMY basic training. It is NOT subtitled The making of a MARINE.
- Steve Forrest
I think Mr Forrest was my favorite here.Mr Widmark and Mr Malden great,but for hunkiness,Steve Forrest drew my eye.
Drill Sergeant Widmark excellent
- Jack Jacoby
Good Military story of the tough drill sergeant with the heart of gold, ably portrayed by the wonderful Richard Widmark. Written and directed by talented and versatile Richard Brooks, it is microcosm of Widmark's career, playing tough guys, killers, and crooks, when in real life, he was one of the kindest, most personable and good natured guys in Hollywood history. Co -starring, lifelong friend, Karl Malden, it's an entertaining and enjoyable story!

Take the High Ground!
Just watched this film for the first time and cannot say enough fine things about handsome, sexy Richard Widmark, who's performance for me stole the film. Could not take my eyes off Widmark, who gives an outstanding performance as Sgt. Thorne Ryan, a tough sergeant with a heart of gold and lots of sex appeal to boot. Worth seeing this film to watch Widmark give a top performance!
- sandy johnson
thos is one of my favorite widmark movies. he is so good in this and every other movie he ever made. i don't think he was ever appreciated for his acting. if he's in a movie i watch it
Solid overall performance
I am so thankful that TCM chose Richard Widmark for Summer under the Stars all -day long. I had no idea he was such a good actor, and the boys in this movie (including Russ Tamblyn) were very convincing as the raw recruits trying to become soldiers under Widmark's rough training. It's even humurous at times. The romance element was not as good for me, but I guess Julie was right that Sgt Ryan really "Was in love with the army". Great finish, repeating the beginning.
