Film directed in 1932 by Frank Borzage, and starring Helen hayes, Gary Cooper, Adolphe Menjou, Mary Philips, Jack La Rue, Blanche friderici, Mary Forbes, Gilbert Emery…


Synopsis: A tale of the love between ambulance driver Lt. Henry and Nurse Catherine Barkley during World War I. The action takes place in Italy and the two fall in love during the war and will stop at nothing to be together. The film also analyses Lt. Henry’s feelings on war and the purpose of fighting.

Review: This is a magnificent picture, photographed sublimely by Charles Lang (who deservedly won an Oscar). Cooper and Hayes are brilliant as the World War One lovers – and the ending will bring you to tears. How wonderful to see Coop so vulnerable and so in love, and Hayes just shines from the screen like a diamond.

This film is very under-rated. The camerawork is ground-breaking and original – look for the shot when Hayes kisses Cooper as he is wheeled into his hospital room. Amazing. I really love this film.
