MIDWAY (Theatrical Release USA 1976)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Midway—easy way to absorb history of the Battle of the Midway—has been well-done.  It utilizes the acting skills of Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Hal Holbrook, Glenn Ford, Robert Mitchum, and the talents of Pat Morita (The Karate Kid). It earns its watch for investment of both time and money.
