’’Hell to Eternity’’ (1960)

Hell’s to Eternity (1960), directed by Phil Karlson, depicts the battle for Saipan and the heroics of Marine PFC and Navy Cross recipient Guy Galbadon, who captured over 1,000 Japanese in combat. Although Galbadon was a Mexican-American in real life, he was portrayed by actor Jeffrey Hunter in the movie. The film also starred David Janssen, Vic Damone, John Larch, and Sessue Hayakawa. A neglected youth, raised by a Japanese-American family in Los Angeles, becomes a decorated Marine in World War II by using his fluency in the Japanese language.

The following weapons were used in the film Hell to Eternity:



Throughout the film, Galbadon carries an M1911A1 pistol.

M1 Carbine

Throughout the film, Marines carry the M1 Carbine.

Korean War Era M1 Carbine, with Birch Stock, Adjustable sight, bayonet lug, and twin magazine pouch - .30 Carbine. Most of the World War II variations of the M1 Carbine were sent back to the Military Arsenals and retrofitted with the Bayonet Lug and adjustable rear sight. This is the version seen after late 1945 and all the way until the 1960s. This version is seen most often in World War II movies, despite being anachronistic for most World War II battles.
