Do you like Western? Film Noir? Screwball Comedies? Anything in Technicolor? Maybe silent? Yeah, that' s my World too.
Technically impressive adaptation of Erich Maria Remarques famous novel.
Tried to avoid a single coincidence with the former versions except the scene in the crater with the dying french soldier. But where you have tears in your eyes in the Milestone-Version, you don't have any feelings for no one in this version.
The screenplay goes miles away from the novel. Take here a bow to 1917 and there a short cut to the Paths of Glory, but lost all great…
In the first half I thought " Okay, one of the lesser Preston Sturges"
Then he turned in on Eleven.
Never saw Rex Harrison so hilarious funny. Excellent fun by the usualky stock players, especialky Edgar Kennedy and Julius Tannen.
Linda Darnell has not much to do, but what a woman. I would be jealous myself.
