Product Information : All Quiet On The Western Front (Blu-ray)

Manufacturer's product description

Richard Thomas stars as Paul Baumer, a teen who, at the urging of zealously patriotic teacher Kantorek (Donald Pleasence) enthusiastically enlists to fight for Germany in WWI, accompanied by several school friends. After training at the hands of the sadistic Corporal Himmelstoss (Ian Holm), Paul and his friends head for the front. There, they discover that war is a bloody, deadly business, although they are heartened by the presence of their commander, wily veteran Stanislaus Katczinsky (Ernest Borgnine). ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT is one of the most respected anti-war novels ever written. Though a 1930 film adaptation by Lewis Milestone was widely beloved by fans of cinema and the source material, Delbert Mann's TV production was well received, earning a Golden Globe and Emmys for Borgnine and Patricia Neal.
