The one war film i'd love to see remade, is the 1958 movie 'Carve her name with pride.'

I completely forgot about 'Kelly's Heroes', so it'll definitely have to go on my list. Not heard of 'Rescue Dawn', bob, but i'll look it up. Thanks Zeb for mentioning 'The Boys In Company C', i saw it once years ago and have been trying to find out what it was called ever since, and you've uploaded it... nice Yay

When I watched this in theaters I saw an elderly man (whom I knew to have been involved in the Vietnam conflict) break down and cry . . .

What a harsh picture of a reality that I've thankfully never known.
