Before Private Ryan was saved, the Sullivan Brothers did their part for World War II. This rivetting and tragic drama was the basis for Steven Speilgberg's "Saving Private Ryan" and follows the true story of the five Sullivan brothers who served together at Guadalcanal in 1942. Their patriotisim and devotion to each other was overwhelming and took precedence over all else with tragic results.
One of Hollywood's "lost" classics, it was originally pulled from cinemas after its devastating effect on audiences of the time. "The Fighting Sullivans" is a story you may never have heard of but it's a movie you will never forget.
