Saw it 70 years ago and remember it vividly.
26 June 1999 | by (atlanta, georgia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was eight years old and it has been retained in my memory ever since. As a youngster growing up in Chicago not too long after the Great War, I recall that there were a few "shell shocked" veterans around the neighborhood and I related this to the film. Little did I know then that I would be involved in combat in WWII later in life. Thanks to this site I have been able to locate the title and will now see if I can get a print. This was a great movie of father/son love and devotion.
