Comments about Men Of The Fighting Lady:

Good news. A number of films which were originally on the old gone-the-way-of-the-dinosaur media format, Laser Disc, have reemerged on DVD. "Men of the Fighting Lady" was among them. A relatively austere modestly-budgeted film by MGM it was inspired by the real live accounts by reporter/writer/historian James Michener of those "wild blue yonder" flyboys aboard aircraft carriers during the U.S. policing/fighting in Korea circa 1952 (the film itself was released in 1954, more or less, at the end of that conflict). And, even, though, the movie isn't quite the equal of films like "The Bridges at Toko-Ri", it nevertheless packs a fair amount of wallop where it counts in ramping up the action. Let's all hope this is a positive indication that the WB will eventually release other film titles having formerly utilized the old Laser Disc format. Footnote: That grand old gentleman round the MGM lot actor Louis Calhern portrays Michener.
