Missles! Jets! Tanks! ...It's still the guy with guts and a gun who wins the war!!

Torn between religious pacifism and patriotism, Alvin York of Tennessee went on to become World War I's most acclaimed hero. As the simple backwoods farm boy who captured 132 German soldiers during the Battle of Argonne, Gary Cooper (hand-picked by York) also won acclaim - and his first Best Actor Academy Award®.

Released in 1941 when the United States was on the brink of another war, this stirring adventure inspired thousands of enlisting men. Nominated for a total of 11 Oscars® including Best Picture, a winner for Best Film Editing and movingly directed by Howard Hanks, it tells of a religious man's moral crisis, heroics and subsequent return to the rural life he loved, refusing to capitalize on the adulation heaped upon him. An ode to patriotism and the human spirit, Sergeant York endures as one of Hollywood's finest hours.

          Comments about this product:

          First- Sgt. Alvin York is a distant cousin of mine. My mother was a Pile- descendant of Conrad Pile - Alvin's great, great grandfather. I felt the movie was true to the story of Alvin York. I did wonder if the minister's name in reality was "Pile" - like in the movie. In true life- after becoming a hero, Sgt. York used money given him by the State of Tennessee to fund a Bible College. This was not in the movie. Also, in real life Alvin was a boozer and not so fine a character until he accepted Christ as Savior- then he had a dramatic change and also became a pacifist- like the movie tells. Great movie!

            This was not a gift. We selected this DVD because of the wonderful actors and actresses and the old time story of honesty, courage, and freedom in our country. I would suggest this movie to anyone. Wonderful story.

              Comments about this product:

              Sgt. Alvin York is a distant cousin of mine- he's a grandson of my 3rd great grandfather, Conrad Pile. I noticed in the movie that the minister's name was Rev. Pile. That came as a surprise to me. Since the movie was based on a true story, I assume that was the case.. It did the usual depicting of the minister as a little strange- which is typical of Hollywood in that era. My mother's maiden name was Pile. Interesting! I plan to show it to family members.
