DVD Cover

The Steel Claw is a wartime drama set in the Philippines during World War II. It is an action-adventure film about a handicapped soldier on a mission to rescue an officer in the early days of the Japanese invasion. The Steel Claw was directed, starred and co-scripted by George Montgomery.

It has no relation to the comic book series Steel Claw.



Capt. John Larsen, a soldier stationed in the Philippines, loses a hand in an accident and is discharged from the Marine Corps. An American general is held captive by Filipino guerrillas behind Japanese lines and Larsen is re-enlisted to rescue him. He fastens a steel prosthetic hook, the “steel claw” of the title, and embarks on the mission to rescue the general which leads him and his team, (his pal Santana and a band of guerillas), deep into the Philippines where love and death await them.
