Fixed Bayonets!


Location: Redstone Theater

Introduced by Marsha Gordon

Dir. Samuel Fuller. 1951, 92 mins. DCP. With Richard Basehart, Gene Evans, Michael O’Shea. Pitched as a “straight from the headlines” quasi-documentary, Fixed Bayonets! tells the story of an American platoon entangled in a retreat of United Nations forces across North Korea. Rather than providing an unequivocal polemic on American patriotism, Fuller instead emphasizes the profound aimlessness of war.
