No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Great tragic romance about soldier and nurse in World War I is still a landmark film.
The first Hemingway novel made into a Hollywood film is also one of the better ones due to Gary Cooper's star turn and Borzage's stylized helming, even if a happy ending was imposed against the author's wishes and protests.
Cooper and Hays bring Borzage's liking for towering, vulnerable men and tiny, tough women to its visual apotheosis (her head barely reaches his armpit when they walk).
It's not as good as the book, but it succeeds in its own right, which is really all I ask of adaptations.
