Ronald Reagan Appears as Webb Sloane in "Prisoner of War"
Prisoner of War is a 1954 American war drama film directed by Andrew Marton and starring Ronald Reagan, Steve Forrest, Dewey Martin and Oskar Homolka.
An American officer volunteers to be captured in order to investigate claims of abuse against American POWs in North Korean camps during the Korean war.
Near the end of the Korean War, Capt. Web Sloane, who had served as a liaison between the United States Army and Russian Intelligence during World War II, is summoned by his commanding officer, Major O. D. Halle and given his new assignment: to find out how North Korea is treating its American prisoners of war. Web agrees to go undercover in a POW camp and report on conditions, and is instructed to use the code word "pipeline" if he needs to communicate with the Army.
