Love at First Sight . . . And the Horrors of War

This is the first movie telling of Ernest Hemingway's epic tale of love and war. Hemingway very accurately captures all of the emotions of hope, despair, love and desolation that marked 'The Great War' . . . . World War I, which was fought from 1914 until 1918. Ernest Hemingway fought in this war, and many of his memories from the war are incorporated into this love story. His novel was first published in 1929, eleven years after the end of the war, and this movie premiered in 1932, during the depths of the Great Depression. Gary Cooper is Lieutenant Frederic Henry, and he falls hopelessly in love with Italian nurse Catherine, played by Helen Hayes. Catherine is the girlfriend of his Italian friend Major Rinaldi, played by Adolphe Menjou. The American Lieutenant and the Italian nurse were in love from first sight. Thanks to Rinaldi they were separated . . . . He sees to it that Nurse Catherine is transferred to Milan, and Frederic will never see her again. But when Frederic is severely wounded by an exploding bomb, he is sent to a hospital in Milan where he once again sees the woman he loves. Thanks to a visiting priest they are married as he lays in his bed recovering from his war wounds. This leads to that and Frederic is sent back to the front lines of war, and his new wife Catherine waits for his return . . . If he can survive the horrors of war. After he has returned to the battle, Catherine lets us know that she is pregnant with his baby, but she refused to tell him before he returned to war. Catherine goes to a small town in Switzerland just across the Italian border to wait for Frederic and the birth of their baby. The jealous Rinaldi makes sure that Frederic and Catherine never receive the letters that they send to each other. Frustrated, with no word from Catherine, Frederic runs away from battle and begins he search for Catherine, but everything is against him. Frederic is on the hunt for the one woman who captured he heart, while Catherine waits in Switzerland to bear his child. . . And neither of them knows where the other is. . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
