The Steel Helmet

Item Details

Despite its relatively low budget, this portrait of Korean War soldiers grappling with moral and racial issues while trying to stay alive remains one of the director's most gripping, realistic depictions of the blood and guts of war, as well as a reflection of Fuller's social conscience.

If you liked this classic as much as I do,.. then be sure check out 'A Walk in the Sun' and 'The Young Lions', which are also very good war movies.

Samuel Fuller had a way to show how war effects the typical soldier without the Hollywood blood and guts of today. He shows how combat can change someone's view on life, their fellow soldiers and the people of the country they are in, in a very short time. This is my second favorite Fuller film just after The Big Red One. He even mentions the 1/16th again in this movie.
