Pride of the Marines is the dramatic picture which was nominated for the 1945 academy award as the best-written screenplay of the year. It is the story of a heroic marine and in its way of other heroic American fighting men too whose qualities in battle and in the even grimmer struggle for rehabilitation made these American soldiers the pride of the free world. This is the story of a boy who was the pride of the marines, Al Smith, United States Marine Corps.
