Product description

Product Description

A FAREWELL TO ARMS (Dual Format Edition)
A film by Frank Borzage

Based on the 1929 best-selling novel by Ernest Hemingway, Frank Borzage's 1932 Oscar-winning film adaptation of the tragic Great War romance is newly restored by Lobster Films, and available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

An impossibly handsome Gary Cooper stars as the somewhat cynical Lieutenant Frederic Henry, an American enlisted in the Italian army to drive ambulances during the war. Through his doctor friend, Rinalidi (Adolphe Manjou), he meets Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes), an English nurse whose fiancé was killed at the Somme. What starts as a flirtatious and casual encounter soon develops into something much deeper but can their passion survive the terrible consequences of the war?

A hugely popular film when it was first released in 1932, A Farewell to Arms was nominated for four Oscars and won for Best Cinematography (Charles Lang) and Best Sound (Franklin Hansen and Harold Lewis).

    From Amazon.co.uk

    The 1932 version of A Farewell to Arms owes as much to the shimmering house style of Paramount Pictures as it does the novel by Ernest Hemingway. If Hemingway purists can get past the romanticising of the book, however, this film offers its own glossy appeal. On the Italian front in World War I an American ambulance driver (Gary Cooper) falls in love with a nurse (Helen Hayes). Cooper was a Hemingway friend in real life, and later played the hero of Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls; his boyish simplicity is just right for director Frank Borzage's heartfelt approach. The Oscar-winning cinematography of ace cameraman Charles Lang is the kind of lush black and white that can capture the glow from a cigarette as it plays across Cooper's darkened face--a breathtaking touch. The jaded battle scenes show the influence of the hit film version of All Quiet on the Western Front, especially in a gripping montage depicting Cooper's progress alone through the war zone. Hemingway would have none of it, of course; he once disdainfully wrote that "in the first picture version Lt. Henry deserted because he didn't get any mail and then the whole Italian Army went along, it seems, to keep him company". This is first and foremost a love story, however, and as such it succeeds beautifully, right through to the remarkably intense ending. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
