If you can accept a 30 year-old Audie Murphy playing himself at 18 in this 1955, WW2, Bio-film, then I'm sure you won't be at all disappointed by To Hell & Back.
As far as war pictures go, To Hell & Back's story is a fairly interesting one. This film's a pretty accurate tale covering Murphy's 3-year military career where, through the merits of bravery, he eventually became one of the most highly decorated American soldiers to ever serve in the 2nd World War.
In 1945 Murphy was ceremoniously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
To Hell & Back is basically a wartime "buddy" picture of loyalty and heroism. It proudly boasts about the glory of American patriotism (right to its very core).
