Flying Leathernecks? That's one of Wayne's I haven't seen. Any good?

It's OK, not great. The movie is actually more an exploration of the "fitting-in" problem of 1950s corporate America than actually a war movie perse. The narrative arc is essentially the Robert Ryan character's growth into becoming a senior military officer.
