Entertainment Reviews:

As far as the war is concerned, we see a good deal of physical violence and squalor, but the detail is unconvincing; and what, out of it all, is it trying to say, meaning us to feel? Full Review

Maybe the play wasn't so good, after all. Full Review

Product Description:

The title is derived from the lyrics of a popular wartime ballad Bless 'Em All. This is, indeed, a war picture, set in Malaya. The British troops encamped therein believe they've gotten a break when they capture a Japanese scout (Kenji Takaki)--but it's all part of an enemy trap. The rest of the film concentrates on a battle of wills rather than bullets, though a few spurts of action keep the war-film aficionados happy. Played against the larger tapestry of the world conflict are the fluctuating tensions among the British soldiers themselves. Adapted from a play by Willis Hall, THE LONG AND THE SHORT AND THE TALL was released as both THE LONG THE SHORT AND THE TALL (big whoop) and JUNGLE FIGHTERS in the United States.
