Watch All Quiet on the Western Front film. A film “All Quiet on the Western Front” director by Lewis Milestone. To say that this movie is one of the greatest war films of all time would be an understatement. Naturally, since the picture is based on Erich Maria Remarque’s marvelous novel, the screenwriter was given quite a powerful story to begin with. Lew Ayres is the student leader of a bunch of German school boys in 1914 who listen to the voice of their school master and enlist in the war that’s just been declared. The whole class enlists and that’s not hyperbole because in Germany at the time it was the boys who got the education and the girls if they got it, got it separately from the boys. Despite dated moments, this highly emotive war film retains its overall power and remains a great pacifist work… The film won won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director and was nominated for Best Cinematography & Best Writing.
