A Farewell to Arms (1957) is a superb war-romance based on the Ernest Hemingway novel with the same name. The 1929 novel was a semi-autobiography based on Hemingway's own wartime experiences.
Rock Hudson and Jennifer Jones were at their best.
Beautiful cinematography set in the Italian Alps in addition to very realistic sets.
The ending was very touching and, again, so real.
Based on this movie and two previous posts of mine, "Reds" and "Casablanca", wartime romances are shaping up to be the genre that is moving to the top of the pile. A few more are forthcoming.
It is worth noting that a 1932 version of this movie, starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes, was also well done.
