“I figured them guns was killin’ hundreds, maybe thousands, and there weren’t nothin’ anybody could do, but to stop them guns. And that’s what I done.”

Gary Cooper was never better than in this as a hillbilly turned all American hero. Ostensibly concerning WW1, the film’s release shortly before the bombing of Pearl Harbor transformed it into both stirring wartime propaganda and a box office smash.
The Films At Fisher series will be continuing on 4 August 2015, 5:30pm with the all time classic African Queen featuring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.
