The Great Raid : One of the biggest box office bombs of all time-

One of the biggest box office bombs of all time-

I have never heard of this movie until an hour ago reading on the internet that it is one of the biggest box office bombs of all time. A loss of $69.2 million. I understand that this was a product of a "divorce" but sadly Americans need to know this story but don't. Perhaps a re-release is in order or a special blu-ray/DVD with plenty of advertising behind it? It just seems a waste of a very deserving story. It was the only movie on the list that compelled me to come here and look it up. I look forward to tracking it down and viewing it with my son and mother-in-law. (Her degree is in military history.) Perhaps I should read the book first to better understand the real story from the hollywoodized. Have many of you read the book?

I agree smcbee27..I'm just watching this movie right now on TV. I can't believe I never heard this story before. After watching a couple of minutes, I had to google Henry Mucci. The movie description(on TV) did not say if it was a true story. I read every story I could..INCREDIBLE..
