During the movie, the rifle range scene was for real. The studio probably had help from the U.S. Government. See more »
Fred P. Willis:
Don't you know us guys has gotta make the world safe for the Democrats? Now, personally, my only regret is that I got a life to lay down for my country. But will us dead have died in vain? Be yourself! Remember the Alamo! Remember the Maine! Fifty-four Forty or fight! Don't give up the ship until you see the whites of their eyes! Are we gonna stand for taxation without the pursuit of happiness? E pluribus unum! Hats off! Lafayette, we are here!

It is always interesting to see a film like this.It features famous stars in an obscure virtually unseen and forgotten film.Obviously there is a reason for this.That of course is that this is a misfire on every count.After all casting Gladys George as a young nurse!Talk about stretching credulity.Tracy is probably the best of the principals,but needs someone stronger to play off than Tone.The script was worked on by 5 credited writers but who knows how many more had a hand,and it shows.The motivation for many of the characters is totally lacking and all of a sudden they go in a totally different direction.In fact what might be called the turning moment in Tones character is a point in question.He has wanted to desert when he was in boot camp.Faced with a German soldier he puts up his arms and surrenders.he then sees that the German is dead and his shame at his actions then spurs him on to redeem himself with a courageous act.What a lot of nonsense.Anyway to sum up,not a great film,but worth seeing for Tracy.
