Based on a James Michener epic, this provocative and realistic Korean war drama (which contains a strong anti-war message) chronicles the courage of a pilot and his crew as they attempt to fly into North Korean territory and bomb strategically important bridges. Much of the story was filmed on location in Tokyo and on the China Sea. The film earned Oscars for its special effects and film editing.

"This intelligent Korean (anti)war drama is well acted by William Holden and Grace Kelly."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The Bridges at Toko-Ri effectively depicts the sacrifices and courage of those who went to war."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"'The Bridges at Toko-Ri' is still a vehicle for the quiet determination of character that once placed William Holden among the brightest of stars."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"It seems to be paying only lip service to its pacifist message, but fully believes that wars are a necessary part of life"
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
