Pork Chop Hill is the story of one company's daring and bravery in taking and holding the titlular hill. The film is based on a true account of the Korean War.
Gregory Peck plays the lead part of 1st Lt. Joe Clemons, commanding officer of King Company. With a murderously high casualty rate, they take and hold Pork Chop while the diplomats parley.
Within that main framework are the small pieces of human interest woven in...boys becoming men, cowards faced with their own fear, men reacting to the loss of a buddy.
One gets the sense, while watching the film, that some things are missing--but seeing as it is based in reality that does account for some of the 'missing' time. If one had a fuller understanding of the situation as it was, the odd moment of "I missed something" would not be there.
This film does have a smattering language; but for a war movie it is quite clean (of course, pre-60's movies in general were fairly light on the inappropriate). The blood doesn't get much gorier than in the above picture.
This ranks up there as one of 'good' war movies I have seen...
