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.

A night attack is shown. During World War I there was very little flying at night. And the night attacks that did occur were limited to big cities. It was almost impossible for a plane to attack specific targets in a large city. So effectively attacking people on a road in the dark was not possible. And did not happen. See more »
This is one of those films that everybody (well, OK, MOST everybody) should appreciate. It can be either a romance or a war movie, whichever you want it to be. There are elements of both in approxiamately equal amounts, so both the war buff and the romance buff should be appeased. The acting is superb, by Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes. The story is set in WW I and this was filmed in 1932, so some of the dialog will seem a bit "dated", but make no mistake, this is film making at its best!
