Alvin C. York had been approached by producer Jesse Lasky several times, beginning in 1919, to allow a movie to be made of his life, but had refused, believing that "This uniform ain't for sale." Lasky convinced York that, with war threatening in Europe, it was his patriotic duty to allow the film to proceed. York finally agreed - but only on three conditions. First, York's share of the profits would be contributed to a Bible School York wanted constructed. Second, no cigarette smoking actress could be chosen to play his wife. Third, that only Gary Cooper, could recreate his life on screen. Cooper at first turned down the role, but when York himself contacted the star with a personal plea, Cooper agreed to do the picture.

Although York is shown as clean-shaven throughout the film, the real Alvin C. York grew a mustache while in the Army and kept it the rest of his life. See more »
Well, I reckon these'll do until I get fixed up in government clothes. The corn's doin' right good on the south hill. Might need a little extra hoein'.
The mule's at the gate. You've got a long ways to go.
Well, you'll be takin' care of things from now on, George.
Guess you'll be needin' a man-sized gun. You can have my rifle.
I'm a-thankin' you.

"We are proud to present this picture, and are grateful to the heroic figures, still living, who have generously consented to be portrayed in its story.
To their faith and ours, that a day will come when man will live in peace on earth, this picture is humbly dedicated.
High in the heart of the Cumberland Mountains in Tennessee, lies the Valley of the Three Forks of the Wolf, and here in the spring of the year 1916..." See more »
Still a Great Classic ,Oscar winning Performance for Cooper...
..SGT.YORK...yeah, it was released during WW2,to help the war effort, but it was a true story of the backwoods young man who really did not want to to go to war..and kill others in combat, which at first got him in some trouble.... But, did become a true hero and earned an Oscar for star Gary Cooper. The BEST part of the movie is before..York is drafted and first decides to hide in the hills ...Ward Bond, Walter Brennen are just two favorites that play important roles. The beautiful outdoor scenes in wonderful black and white, in the first of the film is unforgettable along with the fun and realistic setting of York's pursuit of his future wife and a piece of farm land,and the troubles he encounters before...going to war. Another 194O's classic with a lot of heart and soul, along with lots of entertainment value!.
