1950's war bio pic movie. Typical and a "formula movie" for its time & a "feel good" war pic.

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).

*Notes of interest about Audie Murphy* -

(1) Following his service in the war, Murphy successfully pursued an acting career which lasted for 20 years (from 1948-1969). In that period of time Murphy appeared in 40 pictures, all of which were either Westerns or War pictures.

(2) Murphy, who suffered from post-traumatic stress following his military service, always slept with a loaded pistol under his pillow.

(3) In 1971, Murphy (45 at the time) was tragically killed when the private plane he was travelling in crashed (due to poor visibility) into Brush Mountain in Virginia.
