All Quiet on the Western Front (TV Movie 1979) Poster

Trivia

In the scene of Kaiser Wilhelm pinning medals on the soldiers, the Kaiser uses only his right arm and hand, while an aide holds the soldiers' tunics - a nice historically accurate detail, since the real Kaiser Wilhelm had a stunted and withered left arm that was virtually useless.
Richard Thomas was 28 when he made the film, making him 10 years older than the character he was portraying.

When Paul Baumer and his classmates march into the barracks after their joining the German Army they are heard singing. This song is an English version of the WW1 (German) Patriotic song "Die Wacht am Rhein" The movie version of the lyrics, as performed in English, is not the correct one however.
