June 25, 1950 (The Hunters)

We've seen World War II get all the attention (the latest was the important 75th anniversary of D-Day) but the oft-ignored Korean War should be acknowledged, too. Today is the 69th anniversary of the start of the war: June 25, 1950.

This trailer is for The Hunters, a Korean War film that focuses on the jet pilots of the war. Starring Robert Mitchum as the grizzled veteran (his character also fought in World War II) and Robert Wagner, a hotshot young pilot, this 1958 movie dazzles with its flying scenes and is a good addition to the Korean War film oeuvre.
