The destiny of two soldiers during World War II. The German officer Christian approves less and less of the war, while the American GI Ackerman climbs the military hierarchy.
One of the most thoughtful films about World War II, this 1958 Edward Dmytryk (The Left Hand of God) drama, based on a novel by Irwin Shaw The Young Lions, tells parallel stories of two American soldiers (Montgomery Clift and Dean Martin) and one German officer (Marlon Brando), whose war experiences we follow until they intersect outside a concentration camp. Martin plays what he calls "a likeable coward," Clift is intense as a Jewish GI and Brando experiments with the limits of his part as a Nazi re-evaluating his beliefs. Legend has it that Clift accused Brando of bleeding-heart excessiveness. Interestingly, the two Method actors share no scenes together. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

See 'The Young Lions', look beyond the obvious aged method acting & film techniques -just concentrate on the story of these three different charactors. Ignore the schmaltzy 50's Hollywood ending which only exists in the film.
Do what I did - buy this old classic, enjoy it for what it is and then go back to Amazon and order the brilliant original book by Irwin Shaw and get a feeling for American war literature at its best which equals Dalton Trumbo ('Johnny Got His Gun')& James Jones (The Thin Red Line, Whistle, From Here to Eternity).

Marlo Brando was excellent, Mongomery Clift good but Dean Martin, miscast, too old, and looked almost false.
