Rating:
Not Available

In Harm's Way, from the novel by James Bassett, is about the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack which got America into World War II. After the devastating Japanese attack, veteran naval commander Rockwell Torrey is assigned to command a small fleet of Naval vessels. His mission to retaliate against the Japanese initially ends disastrously, and a reunion with Jere, the son he hasn't seen in years is also unsuccessful. Torrey meets Maggie Haynes, a nurse he falls in love with; her young friend Annalee falls for Jere, but is then raped by a colleague and friend of Torrey's, Eddington. She commits suicide. Torrey must juggle the complex relationships between Maggie, Eddington and his son while leading the attack on a chain of Pacific Islands held by the Japanese. Although a box-office failure in 1965, despite its starry cast, In Harm's Way has built up quite a critical reputation over the years.
