Back to Bataan Movie Summary
Back To Bataan begins where the story ends with U.S. Army Ranger raid at Cabanatuan prisoner-of-war camp, freeing many U.S. military personnel from their Japanese captors. The film then flashes back to March 1942 where the U.S. Army under General Douglas MacArthur struggles to hold on to Bataan against the Japanese.
In the trenches, Colonel Joseph Madden, played by John Wayne, orders one of his officers, Captain Andrés Bonifácio, played by Anthony Quinn, to get his shit together because he is moping over his sweetheart Dalisay Delgado who is collaborating with the Japanese and broadcasting propaganda over the radio.
After the U.S. forces withdraw from Bataan, Madden is picked to slip through the lines to organize the Filipinos resistance to fight as guerrillas against the occupying Japanese forces. Madden is also given the knowledge that Delgado is actually using the propaganda broadcasts to secretly transmit valuable information to U.S. military command.read full summary
