ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT:
Academy Award® Winner, 1930 - Best Picture, Director
This epic adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's novel of the same name follows a group of young German schoolboys as they enlist in the army, train, and eventually encounter death and destruction in the trenches of World War I. A masterpiece hailed by many as the progenitor of the anti-war film genre, it lays bare the universal brutality of war, stripping it of its glory, while poignantly illuminating the very personal tragic toll on the young soldiers who do the fighting. The film, which earned both Oscars for both its director (Lewis Mileston) and producer (Carl Lemmle, Jr.), is presented here in its newly restored complete and uncut version.
