in case some did not get the reference:
All Quiet on the Western Front (German: Im Westen nichts Neues) is a novel by
Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran of World War I. The book describes the
German soldiers' extreme physical and mental stress during the war, and the
detachment from civilian life felt by many of these soldiers upon returning
home from the front.
In 1930, an American film of the novel was made, directed by Lewis Milestone.
The screenplay was by Maxwell Anderson, George Abbott, Del Andrews, C.
Gardner Sullivan, with uncredited work by Walter Anthony and Milestone. It
stars Louis Wolheim, Lew Ayres, John Wray, Arnold Lucy and Ben Alexander.
The film won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1930 for its producer Carl
Laemmle Jr., and an Academy Award for Directing for Lewis Milestone. It was
the first all-talking non-musical film to win the Best Picture Oscar. It also
received two further nominations: Best Cinematography, for Arthur Edeson, and
Best Writing Achievement for Abbott, Anderson and Andrews.
It's hard not to like a man of many qualities, even if most of them are bad.
