Sight and Sound

Rating: 2/5 -- Read the book
Helen Hayes takes the movie, wraps it up, and carries it home with her. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Lacks the raw gusto of the book but beautifully played by its two leads. Full Review
4 stars out of 5 -- Cooper was never more handsome, and the chemistry between him and Hayes glows from the screen.
Rating: 4/4 -- Cooper and Hays bring Borzage's liking for towering, vulnerable men and tiny, tough women to its visual apotheosis (her head barely reaches his armpit when they walk). Full Review
Frank Borzage's drama is the original, highly acclaimed film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's 1929 novel about the poignant, ill-fated wartime romance between an American paramedic and an English nurse in WWI. This skillfully crafted film features two of the premiere stars of 1930s Hollywood--Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes--in the leads.
