Sergeant York 1941
This is the story of the most decorated American soldier of WWI, but it is much more than just a war picture. The first half of the movie deals with the titular character's life in the rural hills of Tennessee. He is a wild young man that loves to drink, fight and generally raise hell. His mother rules her brood with an iron fist.
Alvin's life begins to change when he meets and falls in love with a young woman named Gracie (Joan Leslie). He quits drinking and hell raising and begins attending church. When the war comes he is against it and tries to get out of serving by declaring himself a conscientious objector. He is denied C.O. status and gets drafted.
The second half of the movie deals with York's time in the military and the war itself, where he eventually captures 132 German soldiers nearly single-handed. The movie ends with him receiving many awards for bravery including the Distinguished Service Cross and the Congressional Medal of Honor. Alvin York returns home a triumphant hero!
