Rating: 4/5 -- The performance of Gary Cooper in the title role holds the picture together magnificently, and even the most unfavorable touches are made palatable because of him. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: B+ -- Setting a precedent by preseting the saga of a celeb sill alive, the Hawks biopic is a tale of transformation of an obscure Tennessee hillbilly into a national hero, thus showing the validity of the democratic credo that heroes are not born but made. Full Review
The story, human and real, achieves an unsurpassed artistic relief, recounted with sobriety and simplicity. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review
The first half is quite good, documenting York's rural upbringing with great simplicity and charm. But the second part -- the war -- degenerates quickly and grotesquely. Full Review
Rating: B- -- Nothing to get upset about, but also not much to get excited about. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 4/5 -- The breathless pace, the good script, and the mostly fine performances made me more forgiving of the dated aspects of this film. Overall, though, it's Gary Cooper's film. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Moving, memorable, great Warner Bros. biography of WWI hero York, with fine Cooper performance--an Oscar winner.
