To Hell and Back
Directed by Jesse Hibbs
Audie Murphy (The Duel at Silver Creek, No Name on the Bullet, Night Passage), the most decorated American soldier of WWII, plays himself in this gripping, action-packed battle saga. Amazingly realistic war footage and true-life heroics power this compelling story of an ordinary Texas youth whose extraordinary bravery brings him unparalleled glory. But as his list of medals grows, Murphy’s Army buddies continue to fall, leaving him one of the few to recount the unforgettable tale of those who went to hell and back. Based on Murphy’s bestselling memoir, this CinemaScope classic from director Jesse Hibbs (Ride Clear of Diablo, Walk the Proud Land, Ride a Crooked Trail) was a colossal commercial success and a rousing tribute to a great American hero. The stellar cast includes Charles Drake (The Price of Fear), Jack Kelly (TV’s Maverick), David Janssen (TV’s The Fugitive), Brett Halsey (Roy Colt & Winchester Jack) and Denver Pyle (TV’s The Dukes of Hazzard).
