I swore I thought I talked about it in this thread beforehand. Anybody want to see a really good movie that was directed by Anthony Mann, check out "Men in War" starring Robert Ryan, Aldo Ray and Keith's old man Robert Keith. I believe that movie came out the same year as Nightfall. This movie also has a tremendous supporting cast.
As to Ray himself, my first remembrance of him was in the western "Welcome to Hard Times" with Henry Fonda. Also, his role in the "The Green Berets" with the Duke.
Me and a viewing buddy were browsing Amazon Prime for something to watch and stumbled onto Men in War. It is a pretty solid, gritty action/war film. We both enjoyed the survival aspects of the film and I thought that some of the compositions were very effective in setting the mood of the film. I've been a big Robert Ryan fan every since the first time I saw him on television so many years ago and he doesn't disappoint in this feature. Has the feeling of a 'B' film in most respects, but very entertaining.
