Jungle Patrol (1948, 71 min.)
Machine-gun action and suspense are the backdrop of a love story in this tense tale of eight young USAF flyers stationed in World War II New Guinea. Their orders: to intercept Japanese bombers headed for Australian objectives. Their record: An amazing 100 percent. But with a heavy formation of Jap bombers now en route and our boys hopelessly outnumbered, it looks as though their unnatural luck is about to run out.
The Silent Raiders (1954, 65 min.)
Their assignment amounted to “kill or be killed”: During World War II, just prior to D-Day, a seven-man unit arrives on the French coast with orders to help wipe out a German communications center three miles inland. There’s suspense in the Steel Helmet tradition as the men attempt to hold the captured building against the enemy and their snipers.
