This movie is touching, moving and at times, you may find yourself shedding a tear or two.
This is a true story about a poor young man from the back hills of Tenn. who becomes an American hero. He wins our countrie's highest military honor, "The Congressional Medal of Honor". Several years ago I read about this young war hero, named Alvin York and I actually saw his name written on a wall in a room at the Pentagon in Washington DC. There were hundreds of names honoring all those Americans who have won the "Medal of Honor". Anyway, when I saw this movie on TV awhile back, I couldn't believe how well the actor Gary Cooper, portrayed Alvin York. This movie I believe is not just a war movie, but it captures the true ascents, honesty and charactor of this man, Alvin York, A True American. So when this Dvd came out I had to have it. I wish it was in Color, but even in Black & White it is still worth it.
