Many planes for IMPDb.org in this film.

But first, do somebody have any idea of what the truck in the foreground could be?

The movie is American, the set is in Hollywood and other places in California. Can we assume there were such Austin ambulances there—in war time to represent a US base in south-western China, or in 1957?

Anyway, I resume the up-loading.

Another little mystery from this film, the tank-truck seen right background here:

It looks like one Dodge WC of the first series.

Enough with the vehicles.

[Image: borzage58china002.jpg]
is a crepuscular Frank Borzage—please pronounce /bɔrˈzeɪɡiː/—'s movie, and far less a war movie than a romance. War action is only seen after 80 minutes, for about ten.

The rest is a story told on IMDb and en.wiki, needless to insist. It's a rather bowdlerized version of the presence of young armed men among civilian populations. But well, the story is rather gently —I mean, nicely, sensitively— told.

Victor Mature and Li Hua Li (Shu-Jen) are not bad, Ward Bond either. And there are some young actors and actresses (white) quite good looking, but I can't really say more about them. An average movie, a bit too sweet.

Enormous amount of planes for IMPDb.org to come, a crazy hodgepodge.

Moins film de guerre que romance ("inter-raciale", comme ils disent, mais attention, Mature et la petite Chinoise ne sont jamais lèvres à lèvres. Quant à l'ellipse pour dire qu'ils baisent, ce doit être un record d'évitement, je pense, et ce record-là, il fallait se lever tôt pour le battre, à Hollywood).

C'est pas franchement haletant, mais ce n'est pas nul, et il y a de jolis et tendres moments, sans blague.

Pour l'action, elle se réduit à l'emploi abondant d'images de guerre aérienne, d'où la page qui approche pour IMPDb. Et aussi à quelques secondes de Victor Mature, ivre de vengeance, pressant très fort la détente de sa grosse mitrailleuse pour massacrer les faces de citron — les mauvais citrons, les Japs, pas les gentils, les Chinks — et c'est tout, et ce n'est pas beaucoup. Mais, vous l'avez compris, ce n'était pas exactement le sujet.

Ah, tout de même, puisque je suis d'humeur à faire le mauvais esprit, notons que c'est un de ces films où on tire un coup, allez, disons, une nuit d'amour, mais une seule, et bingo, on a gagné, y a un gosse à la clé ! Ou comment concilier les exigences des associations familiales et les nécessités de la progression narrative. Ce n'est pas propre à Hollywood, ça, songeons-y.

So, the IMPDb.org page. Note that en.wiki has largely paved the way for the identifications (you'll criticize them).

And now, between "spoiler" tags, the planes.

Well, whatever the scenario - it has that typical luton-like British Ambulance body, all details match, and nota bene the mirror on the right. I don't know what else it can be.

It deserves its page as a strange intruder, then. Merci, Lateef !

Could the Austin be just in stock footage? The image of it has several aircraft in the background that weren't likely to have been available for filming, such as a Martin B-26 and some twin-engine job on the left that looks like - of all things - a pre-war French Amiot 143!

According to Bruce Orriss's book When Hollywood Ruled the Skies, the producers rented two DC-3/C-47s for the American transports and a "small number" of F4U Corsairs to play the Japanese fighters, but there aren't any Corsairs in the screencaps.

The airliner in the last images is Pan Am DC-7C c/n 44883 N741PA Clipper Great Republic, later converted to DC-7CF freighter and re-registered N74175. Last seen derelict in Miami in 1987, scrapped soon afterward.

You are certainly right about stock footage, 62imperial. A nicely done job in this part of the movie (opening scenes), by the way.

(What could an Amiot do here? Where and when was it shot? Some Free-French item, maybe?)

Thanks for the references.
I think I saw a wing of Corsairs, briefly, mingled with Hellcats images. I probably missed the capture.
