During the movie, the rifle range scene was for real. The studio probably had help from the U.S. Government. See more »
(at around 33 mins) As Saxe hands Rose a list of casualties with Fred on it, in the very next scene the list magically has disappeared from her hands. 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!

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.
