Great tragic romance about soldier and nurse in World War I is still a landmark film.
Noted by many as the best film version of a Hemingway novel.
| Original Score: B
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).
| Original Score: 4/4
It's not as good as the book, but it succeeds in its own right, which is really all I ask of adaptations.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
