Days of Glory -- Setting It Straight (Somewhat)
- David M Levine
Is Mr. denscul aware that, despite what HE had learned in school (essentially what I also learned in school), the war was actually on by the Russians, who died at many, many times the rate of soldiers from any other country. They held on for three long years, awaiting the invasion. Stalin was, indeed, a terrifying monster. But Stalin's evil had very little to do with the fact that the Russians themselves were wildly heroic. I found this movie hard to watch because its writers did not sugarcoat ANYTHING about what these people went through. Yeah, yeah..propaganda. Agreed. But this applies every bit as much to any American war movies made about American soldiers. So keep it in your pants, denscul. Read some history.
Film Debut of Many Greats!
While Peck may not have been rated tops here,he was quite good,IMHO,and Lowell Gilmore was the standout as the intellectual,almost rivaled his cohort,George Macready as the professorial type!
More WWII propganda
Saw this film on B and W TV when I was an uneducated teen. Considering what we know of Stalin, who was the blood sucking dictator of Russia, the references to Russian Freedom Fighters is comical today. The only "freedom" either the Germans and Russians were killing each other was to decide what SOB dictator would end up on top. Gregory Peck was just beginning his career, and did his best to save this film. I am certain that the current dictator of Russia, Vladimir Putin would love this film. As would all the previous dictators prior to Putin going back to when Stalin had his "freedom" fighters. In case anyone is unfamiliar with History, Germany is a democracy and learned that Hitler was replaced by leaders that were elected to power in a real election.
Days of Inglory
Even when I was an uncritical teenager and Gregory Peck was my beau ideal, I just couldn't like this movie.Clunky script, propaganda ladled on like thick greasy gravy. (Normally, I like a skillful ly done WW2 proganda film.)Extremely handsome leads! Everyone does their best with the material at hand.Just watch it as a curiousity.
Days of Glory (1944)
- James Higgins
61/100. This film is best known for introducing Gregory peck to the world in his film debut. It's a rather awkward World War II propaganda film, it's goal being to rally support of Americans toward our Allies, namely Russia. It is interesting for it's historical perspective, but it is too obvious and too melodramatic. It is moving and has a good production.
