All Quiet on the Western Front 1930
War has broken out in Europe, with the main hostilities concentrated between Germany and France. When an influential professor remarks that his students should quit their studies and head off to battle, many of the local boys, including Paul Baumer (Lew Ayers, The Secret of Dr. Kildare), immediately enlist. They soon find themselves shipped off to the Western Front, where the fighting is most severe. There Paul meets up with the gruff but sincere Kat Katczinsky (Louis Wolheim, The Silver Horde) and the two become fast friends. The older man has seen a lot of action, and he warns Paul to be prepared for the horrors of combat. The youths quickly realize that the patriotic hogwash they had been fed by their schoolmaster has absolutely has nothing to do with the horror they observe and experience on the front lines.

Lewis Milestone's adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's anti-war novel is a masterpiece whose power to disturb remains undiminished by the passage of time.
