| Pedestrian war film
If it weren't for the presence of Jack Nicholson in the cast of Back Door To Hell I doubt this film would be remembered at all. Watching it today you can see the beginnings of the legendary cynical persona that Jack Nicholson was hewing for his later image that we know so well. That voice is unmistakable.

Although this World War II film was shot on location in the Phillipines for production values it's pedestrian and the direction is non- existent. Singer Jimmie Rodgers is not exactly an inspiring leader of men. Rodgers, Nicholson, and John Hackett are three advance scouts prior to the invasion of Luzon who are seeking intelligence on Japanese troop movements. The story is their mission and how they obtain what they need.

Jack Nicholson fans, this one's for you and very few others.
