June 25, 1950 (One Minute To Zero)

Good morning!

Today is the 67th anniversary of the start of the Korean War ("Isn't this where we came in?" "It's even Sunday morning!"). And it was a Sunday that it began, as the film's dialogue attests. .

One Minute To Zero stars Robert Mitchum and Ann Blyth in a film released in 1952, with a year to go in the Korean War. A mix of flag-waving and gritty realism, the movie is most noteworthy for actual combat scenes and a controversial scene involving Korean refugees. Howard Hughes, the owner of the studio (RKO), refused to delete the scene when requested by the U.S. Army.
