With Louis Wolheim, Lew Ayres, Raymond Griffith, Slim Summerville. This was one of several revisionist looks at WWI during this period, including Rowland V. Lee’s Barbed Wire, John Ford’s Four Sons, G. W. Pabst’s Westfront 1918, and Ernst Lubitsch’s The Man I Killed. The film is most noteworthy for its fluid battle scenes and sensitive performances, helped along by the coaching of a fledgling George Cukor. 129 min.
