In the last months of WWII, a group of 14 intrepid British
and Aussie soldiers combined forces for a daring and dangerous
mission. "Operation Jaywick" was designed to cripple the Japanese
naval fleet in Singapore harbor. With only a few rickety wooden
boats, a handful of weapons, and a surplus of guts at their
disposal, the title characters set about to complete their mission
and return home in one piece. Based on the novel by Ronald McKie. ~
Most historical details for the movie came from a book about
the event and the Japanese fishing vessel which was used in the
real life raids is currently moored in the Sydney harbor where it
is considered a national treasure. In the movie, a pontoon boat
powered by two outboard motors was used. A sequel entitled "Heroes:
the Return" was produced two years later, in 1990, and is even more
carefully researched for historical accuracy. Much to my delight,
the copies which I have of both the movie and its sequel are of
their original mini-series lengths. The movie as shown on US
television was a shortened version. Efforts are ongoing to find a
way to release the movies on cassette in the United States although
the producer doesn't expect any success for the venture. That will
be unfortunate since "The Heroes" is such fine cinema and provides
a glimpse into the sacrifices and intrigues of the war in the
Pacific. It also helps us appreciate the contributions of the
Australians.
