Interesting comedy/drama as tanks replace cavalry horses.
13 February 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting little film. It's a romantic comedy for two thirds of its length, then suddenly turns into drama. Set against tests involving the newly developed Army tanks and their suitability for replacing cavalry horses, is a romance between the tank's creator (Foster) and the Colonel's daughter (Evans). When the Colonel is killed in a tank accident, a court marshall develops and the ending will surprise you. It's the kind of story that usually was clever enough to get an Oscar nom but it failed to pick one up in this category. The Academy did think highly of it, though, nominating it in three categories: Cinematography (undeserved), Sound (deserved) and Score (deserved). The sound recording is excellent and the delightful score is both comic and dramatic in turns. Leading lady Madge Evans resembles Paulette Goddard both facially and in terms of her acting style - one would think them sisters. This is a good little film from Republic and worth a look.
