Aro Recommended Red Badge of Courage, The


USA 1951, 69 minutes
Dir. John Huston
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Action/Adventure / War

Topics: Period - 1800s.


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.
