Rating: C+ -- Unconvincing World War II tale that mixes war and a soap opera war romance. Full Review

[A] well-acted drama of love and war. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The wartime material is fairly standard (if well-executed), but the simmering theme of racism is honestly handled, and Sinatra is excellent. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- Kings Go Forth is just more proof that Daves remains one of the most crucially overlooked directors of the classic Hollywood studio system. Full Review

Product Description:

Frank Sinatra stars as Lieutenant Sam Loggins, an American G.I. stationed in a small war torn French village in AS KINGS GO FORTH. Abroad and lonely, he falls in love with a mixed-race American woman, Monique (Natalie Wood). Monique in turn has set her sights on Britt (Tony Curtis), a rich playboy who's a new member of Sam's platoon. When Sam learns that Britt has told Monique he could never marry her because she isn't white, he resolves to kill Britt. But an upcoming mission vital to the Allies' victory over the Nazis makes both men reconsider their feud.

Set in France in 1944, AS KINGS GO FORTH is a riveting film. Director Daves renders an exotic backdrop of villas and meadows as the two battle-hardened GI's court Monique, evoking a teenage sense of lust and angst. Most delectable however are the hunky leads. Cleverly juxtaposed, Sinatra and Curtis are utterly convincing as enemies. One cannot help but root for Sinatra's character Sam.
