THE REAL GLORY (Theatrical Release USA 1939)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Real Glory
—Gary Cooper and David Niven—shows the skill and quality of story-telling that older-produced movies still easily maintain. This 1939 film, despite its age, entertains and allows insight into the human psyche to show us humans through the ages have not changed much. The movie is worth its watch.

The movie tells about tactics the United States military used while occupying the Philippines during the early part of the 20th century.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. For newly developing or long-time Gary Cooper fans, it just works. Don’t bypass this movie due to its age. It is quality entertainment and tells a very good story.
