| No sir, I didn't like it
I know little about the play on which this was based, nor have I seen the previous silent film version of that play. So my gripes aren't about how faithful this is or isn't. I just think this movie stunk to high heaven and I can't believe James Cagney, let alone the great John Ford, had anything to do with it. This is a very lame, tired war comedy with a paunchy old Jimmy Cagney and Dan Dailey lusting after a younger woman (Corinne Calvet) while World War I is going on. There are some attempts at staying true to its serious backdrop but that just makes matters worse all jumbled together with the sophomoric comedy. One good thing I'll say about it is that Corinne Calvet is easy on the eyes. Avoid this unless you are a Ford or Cagney completist. Or, for whatever reason, you are a big fan of Dan Dailey. Written by the parents of Nora Ephron!
