Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Dollar for dollar and with adjustments for inflation, this is the biggest flop in the history of the cinema. Financed to the tune of $46 million by the Church of the Reverend Sung Myung Moon, it's a vast re-creation of a major battle in the Korean war. Laurence Olivier as Douglas MacArthur leads a peculiar cast, while ex-Bond director Terence Young juggles the explosions and romantic interludes. It opened briefly, received a critical mauling and has barely been seen again.
