“That dream’s against regulations, soldier.”
Today’s entry from Filmology is Battleground, William Wellman’s moving, rough-edged, and sarcastic film about a platoon mired in the bloody snow during the Battle of the Bulge. It’s a stirring corrective for anybody who thinks that all films of that era were uniformly flag-waving patriotic propaganda.
My book, Filmology: A Movie-a-Day Guide to a Complete Film Education, is now for sale in both paperback and ebook formats.
