Battle Zone (1952) was one of a series of Hollywood films that came out during the Korean War, focusing on human relationships during the conflict. Shot entirely on location at Camp Pendleton and Hollywood in Southern California, Marine technical advisers helped with authenticity by getting the main male stars to get standard G.I. haircuts. The story centers around two World War II veteran friends that have taken different paths to continue to fight in the Korean conflict. Mitch (Stephen McNally) has stayed in the armed forces since the end of World War II, and is already stationed in Korea with his lover (Linda Christian), when Danny (John Hodiak) shows up after re-enlisting. It soon becomes clear that although Danny had left Mitch's lover after World War II, he still has unrequited feelings that carry over and help build tension in the movie. Linda Christian was married to Tyrone Power when this movie came out and turned down the lead role in 'From Here to Eternity' the following year.moreless
