Overview

Harry Brown's honest, unsentimental WW2 novel A Walk in the Sun has been effectively adapted for the screen by Robert Rossen. Dana Andrews stars as Sgt. Tyne, a platoon squad leader in Italy who ends up assuming command of his platoon after a series of deaths. As they prepare to attack an isolated Nazi-held farmhouse, each of the infantymen reveals his true character as he dwells upon his background and contemplates the job at hand. The film's effectiveness lies in the non-cliched characterizations by a carefully chosen all-male cast. Huntz Hall of "East Side Kids" fame is particularly good in a scene wherein he argues over whether the human body or the leaf is the most complicated natural structure. Director Lewis Milestone's use of a ballad to link the action predates High Noon by some seven years.

One of the best movies I ever watched! Richard Conte, Loyd Bridges, were great I loved the movie.

This is without a doubt the best WWII movie that most people don't know about. This is Saving Private Ryan before gore was king. Suspensful, well acted and smart. At this price, buy one for yourself and one for any friend who likes WWII movies.

A Walk In The Sun is a great movie. The Madacy Records DVD I received is bad. The audio was significantly out of sync for a lot of the movie. There also was significant digital snow. Buyer beware.
