Bridges at Toko-Ri, The -- Korean War melodrama from James A. Michener's novel about a lawyer (William Holden) recalled to active service as a jet pilot on an aircraft carrier (commanded by Fredric March) sent to destroy the heavily defended target of the title. Director Mark Robson does equally well with the shipboard camaraderie (notably Mickey Rooney, Earl Holliman and Charles McGraw) as with the short visit of the pilot's wife (Grace Kelly), all of which strengthens the emotional impact of the pilot's final mission. Tense wartime action and a scene in a unisex Japanese bathhouse. (A-II)1954
