A made-for-Cagney part as a cocky Brooklyn kid who likes nothing better than a fight. He gets all he can handle as a member of "The Fighting 69th," the celebrated Irish-American unit that goes "over there" and into the trenches of World War I. His bravado melts as the Kaiser's guns rain death onto the Allied positions. A fine blend of fighting action, humor and real emotion. Avoid colorized version.
