What Price Glory (22-Aug-1952)

Director: John Ford

Writers: Henry Ephron; Phoebe Ephron

From a play by: Maxwell Anderson; Laurence Stallings

Keywords: Comedy, Romantic Drama, WWI

Capt. Flagg and his "top sergeant" Quirt bicker over women and other matters in WWI France. Bowlderized remake of What Price Glory (1926), originally planned as a musical comedy. What Price Glory has the feel of a film made ten or fifteen years earlier. Aimless and disappointing.
