If you have not seen this film, then I urge you to try it. First produced, as it was, around the time of the Vietnam war it is set during the First World War, and is basically a fairly simplistic anti-war work. Even so, the songs, and the way it works makes a strong impression. Featuring just about anyone who was anyone in the theatre world at the time, it still has relevance today.
As others have pointed out, it may well have greater impact in a theatre production - and the film is made in a very theatrical way - but for those of us who have not had that opportunity, then this film is the next best thing.
