Wow! It's Unimaginable that this Movie would have been Made in just Two Short Years. There were Many Anti-War Films about WWI Produced in the Thirties and this was Probably The Last. It's Anti-Gun-Anti-War Message would be Halted for Pro-War Propaganda Movies from Here on Out for Obvious Reasons.
But Here it is. A Mediocre Movie with some Visuals Flourishes (mostly at the beginning) that are Striking and Different. The Opening Montage is Highly Expressionistic and Impressive. But this is One of Those that gets Worse with Each Passing Scene. By the End it is so Formulaic and Uninteresting that the Thing just Falls Asleep.
The Acting is Nothing to Write Home About with Gladys George Looking Constipated Most of the Time, Spencer Tracy Reading His Lines with Little Conviction, and Francois Tone Mostly Whining (the first half) and Mugging (the second half).
It is Barely Recommended for those that Love Spencer Tracy or Find Some Articism in Director Van Dykes Sometimes Spiffy Style.
