Battle Circus ★½ 1953

Sappy drama casts Bogart as a surgeon at a M* A* S* H unit during the Korean War. Allyson is a combat nurse who finds love amongst the harsh reality of a war zone. Bogart was badly miscast and his performance proves it. Weak script and uninspired performances don't help this depressing story. 90m/B VHS .
