Synopsis / Plot
Bold and the Brave traces the destinies of three American soldiers stationed in Italy during World War II. Wendell Corey is top-billed as an idealistic soul who doesn't believe in killing. Don Taylor portrays a religious bigot, who can't see anything in terms other than Good and Evil. The most intriguing (and entertaining) member of the trio is Mickey Rooney, an inveterate gambler who runs a floating crap game up and down the Italian front. Since Rooney frequently declares that he's building up enough money to open a fancy New York restaurant, it's a foregone conclusion that he's not going to get out of the war alive. The title song for Bold and the Brave was cowritten by Mickey Rooney and Ross Bagdasarian, the latter best known as the creator of Alvin and the Chipmunks.
