Four disillusioned Army buddies roam post-WWI Europe.

DirWilliam Dieterle CastRichard Barthelmess , David Manners , John Mack Brown .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Dieterle. Richard Barthelmess, John Mack Brown, Helen Chandler, Walter Byron, Elliott Nugent, David Manners. Piquant film about an ex-WW1 flying ace (Barthelmess) and his flippant friends in 1920s Paris. Written by John Monk Saunders (of WINGS fame), and based on his novel, this focuses on the same "lost generation'' that Hemingway wrote about in The Sun Also Rises. Not a perfect film, but an interesting and unusual one. German director Dieterle's English-language debut.

A veteran fights drug addiction to make his way in the business world.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William A. Wellman. Richard Barthelmess, Loretta Young, Aline MacMahon, Robert Barrat, Grant Mitchell, Douglass Dumbrille, Charles Grapewin, Ward Bond. Potent melodrama with Barthelmess as an American Everyman who manages to survive one calamity after another--from morphine addiction (as a result of a WW1 injury) to job-hunting during the Depression--and continues to endure, like the country itself. Ambitious script by Wilson Mizner and Robert Lord tackles everything from the hypocrisy of hero worship to Communism! A fascinating social document of the early 1930s.

With no other prospects, a World War I veteran turns to crime.

95 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: W. S. Van Dyke II. Spencer Tracy, Gladys George, Franchot Tone, Edgar Dearing, Charles Trowbridge, Cliff Edwards, Mary Lou Treen. Gun-shy hayseed Tone, who was taught "thou shalt not kill,'' changes dramatically when he fights in WW1. Tracy is his devoted pal, who later tries to save him from a life of crime. Dramatically obvious, and falls apart with the entrance of nurse George; still, the opening montage is striking, and the war- related scenes exceptional.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: H. C. Potter. Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart, Walter Pidgeon, Hattie McDaniel, Sam Levene, Nat Pendleton. Stewart and Sullavan are always a fine pair, even in this fairly routine soaper. Naive soldier falls in love with loose-moraled actress, who gradually softens under his influence. Beautifully done, including Slavko Vorkapich's masterful opening WW1 montage. Remake of 1929 film with Gary Cooper and Nancy Carroll; filmed again as THAT KIND OF WOMAN.

D: George Fitzmaurice. Greta Garbo, Ramon Novarro, Lionel Barrymore, Lewis Stone, C. Henry Gordon, Karen Morley. Garbo is the alluring spy of WW1, beguiling everyone from Novarro to Barrymore. Highlights: Garbo's exotic dance sequence, Morley stalked by gang executioner. That's an unbilled Mischa Auer in opening scene as condemned man who won't betray Garbo's love.

D: George Archainbaud. Constance Bennett, Gilbert Roland, Edward Ellis, Sam Godfrey, Lucien Prival, Mischa Auer. Russian spy Bennett falls for Austrian captain Roland in this derivative but handsomely mounted WW1 romance in the wake of MATA HARI and DISHONORED. Bennett even sings and does a fan dance!
