Deep thoughts and lots of surprises
le 9 décembre 2002
Alvin York is a rapscallion. He is self centered and rambunctious. One stormy evening he is returning from the local watering hole when lightning strikes. As a result he gets religion. There is a great war and the local selection board sends greetings to Alvin. No Alvin finds that he is a conscientious objector.
So how is he to salve the conflict?
The answer is the story told here of a hero and his consciousness.
The movie was well paces and had just the right people to play the characters. It was fun to watch how Alvin (Gary cooper) suddenly and progressively alters his look on life. He gives meaning to "I see the light".
I appreciated the scene where he is in on the mountain contemplating the dichotomy of life and defense. It has the same feel as in the movie "The Razors Edge" where Tyrone Powers contemplates being one with God.
Later it was fun to see how Alvin applied his turkey target skills. And asking people to take a few prisoners off his hands.
This is one of those movies that can use repeated viewing
