    Description: The Technicolor adventure epic Flying Leathernecks offers two things that film cultists can never get enough of: star John Wayne and director Nicholas Ray.

    Filmed at the behest of RKO chieftain Howard R. Hughes* Leathernecks is a paean to the Marine Flying Corps of World War II. Wayne plays Major Dan Kirby* a squadron commander* whose no-nonsense attitude is sharply at odds with the easygoing approach of executive officer Captain Carl Griffin (Robert Ryan). Griffin eventually learns the value of discipline at all costs* while Kirby becomes more humanized as he gets to know his pilots.Jay C. Flippen steals the show as a supply sergeant who "borrows" from other companies to keep his men happy.
