All Quiet On The Western Front is an acclaimed remake of the devastating war story--about a generation destroyed--written by novelist Erich Maria Remarque. It tells the tragic tale of a group of young German recruits during World War I. Directed by Delvert Mann and starring Richard Thomas.
Although Lewis Milestone's 1930 films remains the cinema's definitive version, director Delbert Mann (Desire Under the Elms, Marty) has done a workmanlike job bringing the novel to the screen. The scenery and costuming in this period piece are well done, and surely contributed to its winning the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Made for TV. Also exceptional are the cinematography and special effects that, while realistically gruesome, truly emphasise the horrors of war. --Zachary Lively, Amazon.com

Richard Thomas as Paul Baumer? No you'd have said but he plays the part surprisingly astutely and Ernie Borgnine is brilliant as the veteran Kat.Published 5 months ago by M. Bolton
