You've seen these actors before. I was surprised at the number of CW/WBTS themed movies and TV shows that were out there. Click on the link for a photo of the actor...

That's cool. I am kind of a movie fan myself. I especially like well done war movies, of which very few are good films. The best, in my opinion, would be "Winter War."

I've always thought Bill Mauldin in "The Red Badge of Courage" really owned his character and sold it to you. Besides which, any guy who says that when he sees a stuffed shirt he wants to punch it, yeah. I get that. :-)

For a guy who was only in two movies, he was pretty good. I got the impression that was kind of like a lark to him. Pretty good marketing by the studios, too, to get two fellows like Bill Mauldin and Audie Murphy, well known for their exploits in WWII, as soldiers in the classic story for the Civil War.

"Winter War" -- which I think only Steve Mormando of Belle and Blade sells -- is a great war movie, and it's obvious the director wasn't too worried about losing an extra or two. The pre-WWII equipment and vehicles alone are worth it. If you liked that movie, I highly recommend "The Bridge," which few people have seen, but which was nominated for an Oscar. It is about six German teens who are pressed into the Wehrmacht near the end of WWII, and then ordered to hold a bridge as the Americans are advancing. They are not expected to actually have to fight, but of course things change....

My High School showed us the "The Bridge" back in the late 60s which may have had an affect on us Viet Nam-wise.

Rent Saints and Soldiers, not a bad Mormon-made movie about survivors of Malmedy. Great for "gear" buffs too.

Dr. Gary Gallagher of the University of Virginia finished writing a book this past spring on how the Federals are portrayed in more current movies. He's focusing on films from "Glory" forward. As both a movie buff and civil war enthusiast, you might find it of interest when it comes out.

Red Badge of Courage is the one remake Id love to see done. A great story. Toby McGuire was my first choice to play Henry.
