Fixed Bayonets! (1951)

Fixed Bayonets! is a 1951 Korean War film that was the second film by writer/director Samuel Fuller to depict the war following the critical and commercial success of The Steel Helmet. For this film, Fuller was given a bigger budget, bigger cast, bigger stars, bigger enemies (Chinese Communists), and bigger special effects this time around. The U.S. Army also provided support for the movie, including technical advice from Medal of Honor recipient Raymond Harvey. The movie was marked the screen debut of James Dean, who portrays "Doggie" and is mainly seen at the end of the film. Fixed Bayonets! is a straightforward combat movie concerning leadership under pressure, with less of the moral content of The Steel Helmet.

The following weapons were used in the film Fixed Bayonets!:


M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is the battle rifle by American troops in the film, notably Cpl. Denno (Richard Basehart) and Sgt. Rock (Gene Evans).
