I find this one pretty depressing. It's the old world war guard trying to make sense of a culture that no longer found glory in combat. Compared to Ford's sensitive This is Korea and stirring Midway, it's inert. That said, some of the stock footage is pretty impressive.

A good film, if a little repetitive in its one-hour version. Apparently also released in a half-hour form, I can see why Ford would have preferred that. The film is a fairly simple career retrospective of Puller, with found footage, an interview between Ford and Puller, and narration by Wayne to carry it all along. However, it also feels a bit like a career retrospective for Ford, moving from the silent pictures of WWI to the glories of the 40s and 50s to life in semi-forced retirement.
