Tell England (The Battle of Gallipoli) (1931)
While Peter Weir's 1980 filmizaton of Ernest Raymond's novel Gallipoli can be considered the definitive version, writer/director Anthony Asquith's 1931 adaptation Battle of Gallipoli (alternate title: Tell England) is a powerful piece of moviemaking in its own right. Carl Harbord and Tony Bruce play two naďve young Australians--one rich, one poor--who are filled with patriotic fervor when World War I breaks out.
