    Synopsis and trailer follow...

    Hometown best friends Jack and David compete for the affection of a gorgeous dame, though Jack doesn't realise that girl next door Mary Preston has eyes for him as well. But World War I is soon upon them, so the boys are off to France to fight against the Germans. Meanwhile, Mary follows Jack into enemy lines as a nurse.

    Wellman's epic drama combines the most spectacular of stunts with the most classical of melodrama, along with one of Bow's greatest performances and the screen debut of Gary Cooper.
