Raoul Walsh was living fully the scenario he'd concocted long ago: he'd hardly finish one picture, and the next morning the studio would throw a new script on his front lawn. In early September 1942, just before the studio released Desperate Journey, and before Walsh began work on Background to Danger, Jack Warner and the producer Jerry Wald asked him to help get them out of a jam. Walsh and Errol Flynn followed Northern Pursuit with Uncertain Glory. By the mid-1940s, Walsh had established his reputation at Warner Bros. as a tough action director who occasionally dipped into nostalgic set pieces or light comedy. But many believed that it was a wrong decision when he stepped onto the set of the implausible comedy The Horn Blows at Midnight. In addition, Objective, Burma! looks back in that way—but it also looks forward to Walsh's westerns of the 1950s as his camera opens up to give the audience a good view of the surrounding landscape. After finishing this film, Walsh convinced Warner to loan him out to Paramount, and, on August 28, 1944, he began the production on Salty O'Rourke. The women Walsh loved are discussed.
