the young lions (1958) - edward dmytryk

The Young Lions has certainly got some top names in it. Marlon Brando! Montgomery Clift!  Dean Martin!
It's anti war, shows that the Germans (Brando) weren't all bad, the USA army could bully their own troops for being a Jew (Clift), and some people just want to avoid war and have a good time. but can be dragged into it whether they like it or not (Martin).
War! Urgh!! What is it good for?
Dated, but excellent, and all three lead characters shine (even if it was a bit too long).
