Exceptional early sound war piece.
25 March 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Henry King paralleled one of those directors like Robert Z. Leonard and Wesley Rugles who had the misfortune of doing their best work in the early sound period when the film making conventions and technique limited its impact in later viewings.

This film is a remarkable pacifist statement, even though offering valiant Doughboys battling menacing Huns, their eyes hidden in steel helmets. The battlefront image making is exceptional.

The story is far fetched, offering strikingly filmed Boardman (from THE CROWD) following Burns, her drunken fiancé, into the front line and, disguised as a soldier, experiencing the horrors of combat first hand. While we know the set piece is as preposterous the depiction of a bombing raid in King's YANK IN THE RAF it is still strong stuff with the sweating troops trapped inside the tank engulfed in a flame barrier, losing their nerve and facing incineration.

The surviving copy of this part talkie has been severely reduced to feature the sound material.
