Korean War Movie


Recommended Posts

My mind isn't as sharp as it used to be so here goes.

Micky Rooney, Flying helicopter rescuing downed piolets.

Get's shot down himself and then he runs along a ditch to get the piolet.

He is killed in the end.

He wore a green scarf.

The helicopters were called Jolly Green Giants?

Name of the movie and any corrections appreciated.

The title is correct. One correction - yes Rooney's character wore a green scarf but in the movie they referred to the helos as eggbeaters. The Jolly Greens came along later and were USAF or Army birds. A fun fact. USAF rescue crews who save a life get a tattoo of the Jolly Green Giant (the food ad, not the helos) feet on their backside.
