Five Came Back

Five Came Back is a melodrama and a precursor of the disaster film genre. The film was directed by John Farrow, photographed by renowned film noir cinematographer Nicholas Musuraca, and written by Jerry Cady, Dalton Trumbo, and Nathanael West. Although considered a B movie, the notices received by Lucille Ball helped launch her as an A-list actress. In 1948, Five Came Back was remade as the Mexican film Los que volvieron. In 1956, producer-director Farrow remade the film as Back from Eternity starring Robert Ryan and Anita Ekberg. ... more on Wikipedia
