In this silent film, a young Argentine fights for France, his father's country, in World War I.

DirRex Ingram CastRudolph Valentino , Alice Terry , Pomeroy Cannon .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Rex Ingram. Rudolph Valentino, Alice Terry, Alan Hale, Jean Hersholt, Nigel de Brulier, Wallace Beery. Famous silent spectacle cemented Valentino's popularity via legendary tango scene, but aside from that it's a relentlessly grim antiwar story of cousins who end up fighting on opposite sides during WW1. Extremely well made, with imagery that still staggers and message that cannot be overlooked. Based on the Blasco Ibanez novel. Remade in 1962.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Michael Powell. Conrad Veidt, Sebastian Shaw, Valerie Hobson, Marius Goring, June Duprez, Helen Haye, Cyril Raymond, Hay Petrie. Intriguing espionage melodrama set in WW1 Scotland with Veidt as German naval officer/spy and Hobson a charming double agent. Nice surprise twists in story, with bittersweet romance worked in. That's Bernard Miles as the desk clerk in the opening scene. Scripted by Emeric Pressburger and Roland Pertwee; first collaboration of Powell and Pressburger. Original U.S. title: U-BOAT 29.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: J Walter Ruben. Richard Dix, Elizabeth Allan, Ralph Bellamy, Theodore Newton, Frank Conroy, William Cagney. Sculptor Dix has no use for flag-waving as America enters WW1; after being admonished by girlfriend (Allan), he becomes a fighter pilot... and undergoes a personality change. Sincere antiwar tract, but far too melodramatic. Co-scripted by John Monk Saunders.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wellman. Tab Hunter, Etchika Choureau, William Wellman, Jr., Jody McCrea, Dennis Devine, Marcel Dalio, David Janssen, Paul Fix, Will Hutchins, Clint Eastwood, Tom Laughlin, Brett Halsey. Wellman's final film is a well-intentioned but flat account of the celebrated French flying legion of WW1, spotlighting the coming to maturity of wayward Hunter. Mostly of interest for its cast, with Wellman, Jr., playing his father (who actually was a pilot during the war). Wellman, Sr., wrote the story and narrates.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: James Whale. Mae Clarke, Kent Douglass (Douglass Montgomery), Doris Lloyd, Frederick Kerr, Enid Bennett, Bette Davis, Ethel Griffies. Excellent early-talkie version of the tearjerker romance made famous in its 1940 remake. Clarke delivers an exceptional performance as an American chorus girl in WW1 London, and the film has a grittiness (missing from the remake) that lenient pre-Code standards allowed. One of Davis' earliest films.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Stanley Kubrick. Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker, Adolphe Menjou, George Macready, Wayne Morris, Richard Anderson, Timothy Carey, Suzanne Christian, Bert Freed. During WW1, French general Macready orders his men on a suicidal charge; when they fail, he picks three soldiers to be tried and executed for cowardice. Shattering study of the insanity of war has grown even more profound with the years; stunningly acted and directed. Calder Willingham, Jim Thompson, and Kubrick adapted Humphrey Cobb's novel--based on fact.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Lewis Milestone. Lew Ayres, Louis Wolheim, John Wray, Slim Summerville, Russell Gleason, Ben Alexander, Beryl Mercer. Vivid, moving adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's eloquent pacifist novel about German boys' experiences as soldiers during WW1. Time hasn't dimmed its power, or its poignancy, one bit. Scripted by Milestone, Maxwell Anderson, Del Andrews, and George Abbott. Academy Award winner for Best Picture and Director. Originally shown at 140m., then cut many times over the years; restored in 1998. It's 130m. on home video. Sequel: THE ROAD BACK. Remade for TV a half century later.

German soldiers face terror and despair on the front lines during World War I.

CastGustav Diessl , Claus Clausen , Else Heller .
93 min,
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: G. W. Pabst. Fritz Kampers, H. J. Moebis, Claus Clausen, Gustav Puttjer, Jackie Monnier, Hanna Hoessrich, Vladimir Sokoloff. Pabst's first sound film is a bone-chilling, unrelentingly bleak--and ultimately pacifistic--account of German soldiers battling their French counterparts in the trenches during WW1. Without the benefit of modern special effects, Pabst creates a vividly realistic, horrifying view of war, and effectively contrasts the tedium and sudden bedlam universally experienced by soldiers. Makes an intriguing double-bill with his KAMERADSCHAFT (1931). As powerful an antiwar statement as ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT.

German miners defy international prejudice to rescue French miners trapped beneath their countries' borders.

CastErnst Busch , Andree Ducret , Alexander Granach .
86 min,
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: G. W. Pabst. Fritz Kampers, Alexander Granach, Ernst Busch, Elisabeth Wendt, Gustav Puttjer, Andree Ducret. Heartfelt, ultra-realistic account of a mining accident that occurred near the Franco-German perimeter in 1906, and what happens when German miners dig underneath the border in an attempt to rescue their French brethren. Filled with drama, irony, symbolism, and a huge dose of humanity. It should be contrasted to the content of Pabst's WESTFRONT 1918.
