Lacking even a journalistic, contemporary quality, Today We Live is a flimsy business. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- A stilted WWI love triangle story set in England. Full Review

Sep 18, 2013
Aided by some beautiful writing and excellent acting, the picture will probably go down as one of the best directed in many a day; particularly in love scenes and the hair-raising scenes of battle, both in the air and on the water. Full Review

Description by

Wartime romance is always potent material for film, with the specter of sudden death making now intense and desperate. Today We Live is such a film. Set during World War I, it tells the story of a lovely English aristocrat whose heart belongs to a dashing American flyer... and to her childhood sweetheart, who cannot face war's terror without her love. Few films have so impressive a pedigree: the only screen pairing of movie icons Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford, direction by Howard Hawks (The Dawn Patrol, Air Force) and story and dialogue by 1949 Nobel Prize-winner William Faulkner. Highlighted by thrilling combat sequences, Today We Live is a haunting reminder of the sacrifices of body, mind and spirit made in time of war.

Product Description:

At the height of World War I, American Richard Bogard (Gary Cooper) rents the country home of Englishwoman Diana Boyce-Smith (Joan Crawford) just as her father has been killed in fighting. Diana has long been in love with Claude (Robert Young), an old friend who proposes to her, but she finds herself increasingly attracted to the charming Bogard, especially after Claude leaves with Diana's brother Ronny (Franchot Tone) for naval duty. As the war heats up, Diana and Bogard decide to go their separate ways and join the effort against the Germans but then find themselves stationed near one another and are unable to deny their attraction. Bogard and Claude become rivals for Diana's love under the most dangerous conditions of raging war.

Director Howard Hawks choreographs an exciting array of battles in the air and at sea, creating scenes of first-rate war action interspersed with the hazardous love triangle. Based on a story by William Faulkner (who also cowrote the screenplay), TODAY WE LIVE is a dynamic tale of heroism, love, and sacrifice.

Plot Synopsis:

A daring young American aviator sets his sights on German targets--and on the heart of an Englishwoman betrothed to another man.
