War of the Sexes

Hollywood churned out many patriotic themed movies during World War II that inspired us to action, and that is what I was expecting in this spy thriller, but I was wrong. I wasn't alive during those days, but I have been honored to create a web site that tells about one of the bloodiest and hard fought battles of the war on the Tinian Islands, and the battle of Tarawa. Many of our bravest soldiers fought on those small strips of earth jutting out of the untamed South Seas. This adventure is more hula girls chasing American boys than it is American spies chasing Japanese and German agents. Sure, the premise is that the Germans are on the island trying to carve out a landing field for Japanese planes, but that is only the excuse to put two virile young Navy boys on an island with a couple of very horny Island girls. Wouldn't ya know it . . . thousands of miles away from America one of the prettiest Island Girls was born in Flatbush with the last name of O'Shaughnessy, and her cousin, the beautiful Gale Storm, is also on the island . . . just waiting and ready for two brave Navy boys to marry them and take them back to America. Sheesh, only in the movies . . . but of course showing the world the raw and awful side of life is not the duty of movie makers . . . entertainment that takes us away from the troubles of the day is an important part of movie magic, and this movie does exactly that. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it, grab your hula hoop from the closet and enjoy the show.
