Aroview: A classic film version of the classic American Civil War novel by Stephen Crane, which depicts the line between courage and cowardice in the Yankee army.
Real-life soldier Audie Murphy plays a conscience-stricken soldier who must redeem his lack of bravery – and soon gets plenty of chances in several superbly staged battle scenes. Although this was edited down to short-feature length, it still ranks as one of dir. Huston's best, distinguished by great photography, ironic humour and the emotional vulnerability of its characters.

3 stars (Good Enough) Basically anti-war by emphasising the human element as well as successfully portraying the battle scenes. Enjoyed the small talk between the soldiers before and after a battle.~tubbs
