Lately, Jerry has been under serious mental stress; he cannot seem to forget the deaths of his fellow soldiers, enemies and compatriots alike. Jerry is given time off to recuperate in London.

Audience Reviews for The Eagle and the Hawk

  • Dec 13, 2019
    It's WW1, when new technology allowed for better warfare, pulping generations into meat-grinder assembly lines of death. Fredric March is good as a competent leader of the old school, convinced of honor in combat, increasingly haunted and horrified by the youth wasted. Jack Oakie plays the thumbs-up humorous comic relief effectively. And Carole Lombard briefly puts in a sympathetic appearance as a woman back home. But it's Cary Grant, who's tasked as the new face of war, where there is no honor, who carries this work. Good stuff.

    Wow what a great film. I've never heard of this film and they premired it on TCM the other day and what a treat. The acting is great all around(Oakie,Lombard,and one of Grant's first films) with Fredric March as a standout. The look of the film is great and they mix WW1 documentery footage that works really well. Great story and dialogue with a fantastic ending. One of the best war films of it's time, it's real hidden Gem.
