The Mountain Road (1960) Rated NR

the mountain roadA U.S. Major is assigned to blow up military installations in order to stop the advancing Japanese. Based on the novel by Theodore H. White. Starring James Stewart, Lisa Lu, Glenn Corbett.

This movie, although not the best of its kind, represents war in a realistic light, emphasizing the struggle between what is wrong or right.  It also does a great job exploring the tension between civilians and opposing military fighting in their country. It may be considered by some to be an anti-war film, but I think it is an accurate portrayal of the military carrying out orders to protect the people they are sent to defend. It’s worth a watch.
