Van Heflin, Aldo Ray and Tab Hunter star in Battle Cry, the hard-hitting-action epic of Marine Corps heroism in the WWII Pacific.

Scripted by Leon M. Uris from his own novel, directed by action master Raoul Walsh and starring a who's who of '50s movie stars, Battle Cry is an epic ode to World War II Marine heroism and homefront sacrifice, a saga following recruits from boot camp to a New Zealand base of operations to the war they knew would someday come their way: the bloody invasion of Saipan.
