The Steel Helmet

Sam Fuller's first major accomplishment (1950) is a grim piece of agitprop set in the Korean War, where a battle-worn American sergeant (Gene Evans) forms a survival pact with a Korean orphan. Fuller's powerful direction turns a trite story into a vivid study of national and personal identity. Loud and terse, the film still achieves some remarkably subtle effects.
