OK I recognise this film is pure propoganda but given that it was made in 1941 dose that suprise you. In a "true story" 1914 Alvin York Starts the film as a rebel rousing drunk who to win the heart of his girl he tries to buy better land than the farm he comes from. To afford the land he undertakes many jobs and finishes at a hunting compitition, Alvin wins but is cheated out of the land. As he plots revenge he has a conversion to Christianity, but by then it is 1917 When the USA entered World War 1. Alvin tries to avoid The Army due to his beliefs but is taken any way. The Officers at his training camp give him a book, The History of the Unighted States to try and convise him that some times war is necersary. Following some soul searching Alvin agrees to go to war and is sent to France. His Unit goes into Action andAlvin becomes the higgest decorated American Soldier in all of WW1.
This is a great film with good action and a great story.

The movie was well paces and had just the right people to play the characters. It was fun to watch how Alvin (Gary cooper) suddenly and progressively alters his look on life. He gives meaning to "I see the light".
I appreciated the scene where he is in on the mountain contemplating the dichotomy of life and defense. It has the same feel as in the movie "The Razors Edge" where Tyrone Powers contemplates being one with God.
Later it was fun to see how Alvin applied his turkey target skills. And asking people to take a few prisoners off his hands.
This is one of those movies that can use repeated viewing,

This is just a very good film.
Even us blokes will shed a tear or two.
Dated, mmmmmm yes. However, stood the test of time better than a 70's or an 80's film.
I would recommend, Mr Cooper @ his best.

this is a very good product. the disc, that is. the quality is really good, I was surprised as this is a very old film. The definition and sound are both surprisingly reproduced, digitally re-mastered I think is the term to use. recommended.

Sergeant York is agreat movie of the old school with a dark underlaying theme. It's about ww1 and you can feel the dramtic and dark time it was but with a moral learning. I just love this movie.

The only fault I could find with this great film was it had subtitles all the way through. But after a while you try to ignore them but it did deter the enjoyment of the film. Howevei found that for what it cost this was acceptable

If you like true war movies about the american intervention in to the Euroean WW1 then you'll like this.
Sgt York rose from a backwoods impoverished farmer to become a national hero. The film folows his progress.

A rare film that for some reason does not get a "showing" on one of the many and ever increasing tv/film channels that are made availbel to us in this day and age. An excellent film well worth watching.
