War, Despair, Love, and Hope

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, love, despair and desolation that marked ‘The Great War’ . . . . World War One, which was fought from 1914 until 1918.

Legendary author 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. As the adventure opens, Catherine is the girlfriend of his Italian friend Major Rinaldi, played by Adolphe Menjou.

The American Lieutenant and the Italian nurse are in love from first sight. When Rinaldi sees the intense love between his girlfriend and the American, he determines that if he cannot have Catherine, his American friend will not have her either. Rinaldi will send the beautiful nurse back home to Milan, Italy, guaranteeing that the American will never see her again.

Ahh, but War has few rules, and anything is possible when two souls are bonded in love from first sight. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
