Pre-Code gem; war is real.
30 May 2003 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

I saw the 1936 re-release (Forgotten Women) at the Library of Congress Mary Pickford Theater. Pre-Code film always amazes me with the sex, sass and overall message, but this one really got me. Most war films have a good side, a bad side, and in the end the good side wins. FW shows no particular side, but focuses on the individuality of war, specifically the uniqueness of the female experience. The opening screen of the '36 version has a written thank you to the women who served in WWI, but after seeing the film, the thank seems almost absurd. You don't just say thank you for permananent psychological damage, alcoholism, love and utter loss in 45 seconds. FW is a beautiful testament to the reality of war, especially for women, and especially at the time it was made. My total approval.
