Quotes:
From The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
Bobby Benson: [indicating grave marker during a visit to Arlington] That's my father. He was killed at Anzio.

Klaatu: Well, I'll tell you, Bobby, I've been away a long time. Very far away.
Bobby Benson: Is it different where you've been? Don't they have places like this?
Klaatu: Well, they have cemeteries, but not like this one. You see, they don't have any wars.
