Lewis Milestone, Academy Award ® Best Director winner for All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) directs this compelling drama of American soldiers in combat during the Allied invasion of Italy in September 1943. Dana Andrews, Richard Conte, John Ireland, Lloyd Bridges, and Norman Lloyd head a stellar ensemble cast comprising the lead platoon of Texas Division of the U.S. Fifth Army. This eclectic group of citizen-soldiers are thrust into a life-or-death mission to blow up an enemy bridge while attempting to capture a strategic farmhouse heavily garrisoned by German troops. The dilemma of the common soldier trudging to an unknown fate under a blazing Italian sun is captured by the different thoughts and personalities of a disparate group of men under arduous stress. Who will rise to the occasion or crumble under pressure? Robert Rossen's literate script dramatizes the narrative from the perspective of the infantryman whose mundane routine of service-related ennui is interspersed with heart-pulsing action amid the ever-present specter of sudden death. Once seen, it is never to be forgotten. The superb camera work by six-time Academy Award ® nominee Russell Harlan is supported by the titular ballad written by Millard Lampell and Earl Robinson and performed by renowned African-American operatic singer Kenneth Spencer. A Walk in the Sun was named as one of the year's top films by the National Board of Review, was nominated for Best Film by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and was added to the National Film Registry in 2016 for its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance. Once seen, it is never to be forgotten.

Press Quotes

One of the years ten best films

     —National Board of Review

Dana Andrews gives one of his invariably forthright performances as a sergeant, and the rest of the impressive cast know their way around a script. And that holds particularly true of Richard Conte, who, perhaps, has the best lines.



     —Look Magazine

...a swiftly overpowering piece of work...unquestionably one of the fine, sincere pictures about the war.

     —Bosley Crowther, New York Times

This show remains a beautiful war movie, and is definitely on Lewis Milestone's list of bona fide classics.

     —Glenn Erickson, Trailers From Hell

On a scale of Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent, Classic: Blu-Ray - Excellent; Movie - Excellent

     —AV Maniacs

Technical merits are generally solid, and while some may wish the supplements were in high definition, they're also excellent. Recommended.


Carefully restored, remnants of a damaged source print remain.

     —Matt Paprocki, Doblu

Once seen, it is never to be forgotten.

     —Harley Lond, Film Crave

Once seen, this fi lm in black-and-white should never be forgotten

     —Bob Morello, Video Views

This isn't a particularly well-known film, but it's worth tracking down if you like classic war movies.

     —Mike Spring, Comic Watch

Simply put, this movie is beyond criticism.

     —Exclusive Magazine

The new restoration is solid, even though some wear-and-tear because of the film's age is apparent.

     —Bob Bloom, Reel Bob

The new restoration is solid, even though some wear-and-tear because of the film's age is apparent.

     —Bob Bloom, The Film Yap

One of the best movies to have come out of World War II literately scripted by Robert Rossen from Harry Brown's fine novel, and making marvelous use of the repetitive rhythms of GI banter (with the cheery Conte's Nobody dies!, for instance, gradually assuming the quality of an ironic incantation).

     —DVD Beaver

This is the version of the movie one should have.

     —James L. Neibaur, Blu Ray Review
