| 50's view of the world
Just read the biography of Ed Ramsey, entitled "Lt. Ramsey's War." Digging into movies reflecting that era, I found "Amigo," which I do not recommend. So I decided to suffer through "Huk!," because Ramsey had some run-ins with the communist element as did all our allies in WWII. I knew that Montgomery would be really bad in a 50's melodrama and he did not let me down as he did the worst Clark Gable imitation ever seen. But even in a 50's melodrama you get to see the transition of the protagonist. Going to stay away from spoilers best I can but if you can get through the imperialism, sexism, racism and all the other isms that were accepted in the 50's, the character development of the author is upheld here. Still only a five for me but this is one movie for all who are interested in our history with the Philippines as depicted by Hollywood.
