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.

This plays just fine on my UK DVD player. I had to turn off the korean subtitles but this is the original film, in english. And it's a great film. (cheered me up on a week when the USA let us all down.)

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

One of my favourite films from childhood. Yes it's a bit corny, but it is still surprisingly moving with a great central performance from Gary Cooper. A must for any fan of war films.

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.
