Information and Film Reviews for The Naked and the Dead the Movie

Staff rating

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Sanitized adaptation of Norman Mailer's bestselling novel about army life in the Pacific during WWII. Resentment between officers and enlisted men proves to be almost as dangerous as the Japanese. Uneven acting and cliched characterizations make this an average outing. Don't expect to hear the profane language that sensationalized the book, because most of it was edited out of the screenplay.


Available on VHS
Running time 131 minutes.
