Darby's Rangers


Highly fictionalized account of the formation of the US Army's First Ranger Battalion in World War II and their first commanding officer Major (later, Lieutenant-Colonel) Orlando Darby. The idea was to create a US unit along the lines of the British commandos. In this account, which focuses on several fictional characters, the story is initially on their training in Scotland and the lives and loves their encounter while there. Their first combat mission was in the invasion of North Africa in 1942, followed by the invasion of Sicily and then Italy itself, including the amphibious landing at Anzio.... Show more

It's already the rule, that movies coming from William A. Wellman are always at least 7/10. It is my favorite Action movie because parts felt very similar to my life experience. Very entertaining movie, probably the most popular movie from William A. Wellman. Production also looks good from the music side. That movie is the goat. It sets the 10/10 standard for every other movies in existence for me. William A. Wellman's movies play on emotions and are able to move a more sensitive watcher. Sign me up for the next part of Darby's Rangers.... Show more
