One of the best: The Story of G.I. Joe.....hard to find (NetFlix has it) but worth the effort. Based on War correspondent Ernie Pyles' WWII experiences. Pyles is played by Burgess Meredith. The movie follows a US Army platoon through North Africa and Italy. The platoon members are played by actual WWII veterans. Robert Mitchum is terrific as the platoon's commander. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Mitchum's only nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Stunning and poignant ending.
