    I am a veteran of WW2 and consider, Objective Burma, one of the best war films ever made. The camera work the musical score, the outstanding acting by all, especially, Flynn. I never get tired of watching this great movie. R. Culver

  • A very strange sign

    Objective Burma was created in 1945. The United States Air Force was not created by Congress until 1947. In the opening scenes, a photo recon mission returns to base. The precious film canister is off-loaded from a P-38 Lightning and hustled by jeep over to base operations. As the jeep pulls up in front of the photo lab tent, the camera pans slowly and deliberately to a sign adjacent to the jeep. The camera pans in and holds on the sign for seconds. The sign says, "United States Air Force, Aerial Photographic Section, Field Laboratory." The camera work and the sign itself are baffling. The camera shot is rather long for something seemingly unimportant; however, I suspect a deeper meaning. Next, make note of the construction, graphic lettering, and aircraft silhouette on this sign. It has a mysterious "print shop" quality. The most striking oddity on this strange sign are the words "United States Air Force." The United States Air Force did not exist in 1945? Wording such as "United States Army Air Forces" is appropriate.The slow and intentional focus on the sign is truly strange. I believe those precious seconds of film were deliberate, lingering long enough for a viewer to read every word and contemplate all sign elements. The film had two technical advisors, Major Galbreath and Major Whyte. Unless they did not review the scene, I cannot believe "United States Air Force" missed the editor's knife. Forgive me movie fans, but when I watch Objective Burma I get a creepy feeling and my skin crawls. Whoever created that sign had Nostradamus-like qualities! Even more spooky, there must have been a conspiracy between the sign maker and the camera man who shot the scene. Frankly, I scratch my head and beg for an explanation. Anyone have an answer?

  • My Favorite Errol Flynn movie

    Absolutely great. The fact that it kept my wife, normally can't stand war films, spellbound should tell you about the quality of the storytelling. The writers did a great job and the actors just brought it to life.

  • Excellent Flynn performance

    Well paced documentary style war film with Errol Flynn in one of his best and more intense roles. I own this one and watch it once a year; the air drops and jungle footage are very good and having a reporter along for the ride gives the story it's strong docudrama feel. Flynn is a more mature and intense presence as he first leads his men during a successful mission then has to guide them in a protracted struggle for survival. Several scenes I thought must have been controversial for their time; the mutilation of half the company by Japanese and Flynn's horror stricken face as his best friend begs to be killed and put out of his suffering. The music and jungel sound effects give the film a nice texture.

    I thourghly enjoyed watching the movie objective burma.This is one of Errol Flynns best movies. My father fought in WWII in India ,Burma and China. He was then put on a troop ship headed for the invasion of Japan when the war ended. This movie reminds me of my father and many of my older family member who fought in the war. Men of great moral character and courage and truly the greatest generation. Thank you for saving this classic film. Sincerely Allan LaLonde
