Trivia

This was re-released in 1939 with a new introduction by Mitchell Leichter commenting upon America's involvement in the then imminent forthcoming World War; it was edited down to just a little more than half of its original length, eliminating most of the silent sequences that involved dialogue, and thereby the need for inter-titles, but also most of the original story structure, so that what's left is more or less incomprehensible. The only real dialogue that's heard is in and around a couple songs by Alma Rubens. Sadly, this is the only version that seems to have survived today, at least within the reaches of public availability. See more »

A Mutilated Anti-War Entry
12 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Henry King's "She Goes To War" (1929) was originally a silent film with talking sequences. It ran a total of 105 minutes. Alas, it survives only in a ruthlessly cutdown version of 50 minutes. All the original inter-titles have been removed, but the talking sequences and sound effects have been retained. As a result, the story is a little difficult (but not impossible) to follow, although it still has quite an impact in its harrowing, blistering action scenes which are far more shattering than anything in "All Quiet on the Western Front". Eleanor Boardman is competent as the lead, but it is Al St John and Alma Rubens (in her final film) who give scorching performances.
