Even given a nest of flaws, the basic arc works beautifully: Cooper's abashed, aw-shucks demeanor is a perfect fit for the part.

Moving, memorable, great Warner Bros. biography of WWI hero York, with fine Cooper performance--an Oscar winner.
| Original Score: 5/5

Sergeant York brought him Hawks one and only Oscar nomination for Best Director, and it's arguably his least interesting film.

This is one of those movies where the star appears to have been born to play the role.

Setting a precedent by preseting the saga of a celeb sill alive, the Hawks biopic is a tale of transformation of an obscure Tennessee hillbilly into a national hero, thus showing the validity of the democratic credo that heroes are not born but made.

Nothing to get upset about, but also not much to get excited about.

The breathless pace, the good script, and the mostly fine performances made me more forgiving of the dated aspects of this film. Overall, though, it's Gary Cooper's film.

The performance of Gary Cooper in the title role holds the picture together magnificently, and even the most unfavorable touches are made palatable because of him.

Sergeant York is a quadruple 'A' attraction, destined to go many places and leaving complete satisfaction in its wake.

The first half is quite good, documenting York's rural upbringing with great simplicity and charm. But the second part -- the war -- degenerates quickly and grotesquely.
