The Leathernecks Have Landed is a movie screened first in 1936 directed by Howard Bretheron. Starting off in a military setting, the movie features a United States Marine, Woodruff 'Woody' Davis (Lew Ayres), who was dishonorably discharged after being blamed for causing the death of his buddy, Tubby Waters (Maynard Holmes). Hot headed and eager to avenge his buddy, Davis and his friend MacDonald (James Ellison) embarks on a mission to bring the real culprit to justice. By infiltrating into the gang of Shanghai smugglers, Davis puts himself in close proximity to the perpetrators and begins to gather evidence against them. Davis's hot-headedness often got him into sticky situations, yet his ability to improvise allowed him to tide safely through those close shaves. Along the way, Davis receives help from the motor-mouthed blond bombshell, Brooklyn (Isabel Jewell), who witnessed the death of Waters at the bar that night. This an action-pack movie with plenty of thrilling scenes.
