A Farewell To Arms  (DVD)
Gary Cooper plays American ambulance driver Lieutenant Frederick Henry who has enlisted in the Italian army in this, one of the most successful Ernest Hemingway adaptations to be made into a film. Henry meets and falls in love with British nurse Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes) after being injured during fighting on the Italian front during World War 1 (Hemingway also served in the Italian army as an ambulance driver during the war and was injured in the legs, giving the story a first hand experience). Whilst ostensibly a love story within a war setting, the film questions the nature and futility of war under the skilful direction of Frank Borzage. The film collected an Academy Award for Charles Lang for cinematography and an additional nomination for best picture.
