  • Movie Monday: The Young Lions

    Based on Irwin Shaw's successful war novel, The Young Lions is a 1958 movie that plays out the fate of three young soldiers during WWII. With a string of old Hollywood's finest on the bill including Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift and Dean Martin along with a story line composed of a whole host of opposing themes from love and loss to bravery and cowardice, this film covers all bases in terms of glitterati and entertainment and unlike other films of its time, The Young Lions depicts its tale from the point of view of Germans, Americans and Jews alike. Despite significantly veering away from the plot of the original book, the movie was a major box office hit, earning $4,480,000 internationally and three Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Best Sound and Best Music in 1959 and a BAFTA for Best Film. Needless to say, this is a dead cert for the Cockpit USA Movie Monday pick!
