Movie Info

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 naïve young Australians--one rich, one poor--who are filled with patriotic fervor when World War I breaks out. They make a grueling cross-country trek in order to join the already conscripted troops. Once on the battlefields of Europe however, the boys are confronted with Hell on Earth. Their disillusionment with war and warfare culminates in the death of one of the boys at Gallipoli. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
