Call to Arms                  Pert, fiery, alluring -- this is Charmaine

LIFE -- its humor, drama and pathos, this is "What Price Glory." A gripping story of conflict told with startling realism. The stage play by Laurence Stallings and Maxwell Anderson, on which this motion picture version is based, took the nation by storm. It was sincere, vivid, colorful. Raoul Walsh has kept faith with the authors for he has with uncanny skill translated these humans to the screen --not mere picture puppets, but pulsating men and women who life and breathe, laugh and cry, fight and love -- a veritable orchestra of the emotions.

And spectacle! There is the background of the war, of course, and yet "What Price Glory" emerges in the main as an epic of laughs behind the lines. Here is staged the drama of life, fierce and ugly, beautiful and rapturous, and the whole etched with touches of comedy so naturally funny that it awakens the risibilities to a newer and finer sense of humor.

Here, too, we meet hard-boiled Captain Flagg, the picturesque campaigner, Sergeant Quirt, Beau Brummel of the Army; and Charmaine, as captivating and entrancing a french damsel as any two men could fight over. She loves both men with a passionate and naive innocence. To her they are Yankeeland's bravest and finest warriors, stalwart soldiers ready to fight to the death for her favor. About such human, characteristic figures does this comedy-drama of the screen evolve -- characters who, by virtue of Raoul Walsh's directorial genius, do the human things rather than the make believe of fiction.

Of course, you must meet Private Kiper and private Lipinsky, two inseparable war buddies who add so much warmth and real humor behind the lines. They are living prototypes of millions of our boys who even under fire never lost their sense of comedy and good fellowship. "What Price Glory" is the most sincere film of the century. To see it is to become a living part of it.
