"The Fighting 69th" is a First World War regiment of mostly New York-Irish soldiers. Amongst a cocky crew, perhaps the cockiest is Jerry Plunkett, a scrappy fellow who looks out only for himself. The officers and non-coms of the regiment do their best to instill discipline in Plunkett, and the chaplain, Father Duffy, tries to make Plunkett see the greater good, all to no avail. Behind the lines or in the trenches, Plunkett acts selfishly and cowardly, eventually costing the lives of many of his fellow soldiers. A final act of cowardice leads to terrible consequences, but Plunkett sees in them a chance to redeem himself...if only he can. Written by

This World War 1 movie was based on fact which means some of it was Hollywoodized. Done in the old fashioned Hollywwod style with some corny dialogue but overall it packs a great punch due largely in part to one of Jimmy Cagneys greatest roles. He gets you to hate him and love him at the same time. Pat Obrien is perfect as the priest and although a little syrupy and sappy the duo manages to bring a tear to the eye.There are some other great roles including Alan Hale senior. You may remember his son as the skipper on Gilligans Island. There is also a true reference to the famous poet Joyce Kilmer who died in World war 1.You'll like this movie even if you don't like war movies and you'll love it if you do! Get the popcorn and sit back and enjoy!!!!!!!!
