The Thin Red Line
(1964 Hollywood Movie)

This was the first feature film adaptation of James Jones novel The Thin Red Line originally published in 1962. The film was directed by Andrew Marton and focuses on the men of "Charlie Company" during the Battle of Guadalcanal. The film was shot on location in Spain. The second film adaptation The Thin Red Line (1998) directed by Terrence Malick includes many of the same characters and sequences as this film.
