Filmed in Hawaii and Filled With Excitement!
His friends call him Jim. His enemies call him trouble. And a vampy blonde calls him 76 - because "that's a lot of man."
All 6'4" of John Wayne plays the title role, a federal agent ferreting out subversives in Hawaii. Rallying to the cause are co-stars Nancy Olson and Veda Ann Borg. And 6'7" James Arness (when Wayne would later recommend to star on TV's Gunsmoke) is McLain's war-hero partner Baxter. The documentary-style story moves swiftly, with good-natured humor peppered throughout. Pre-statehood Hawaii locales range from elite resorts to a Shinto temple and from the sunken remains of the battleship Arizona to a Molokai leper colony. Give Big Jim McLain a big hand. Because that's a lot of movie.
