Format: VHS Tape
Gary Cooper was 40 years old when he made "Sergeant York," and his Southern accent is weak at best, but those things do not end up detracting all that much from his performance or this film. Directed in 1941 by Howard Hawks, "Sergeant York" has strong propagandistic elements. A whiskey-drinking hell-raiser, Alvin C. York undergoes a religious conversation when lighting strikes his gun and almost kills him. His goal in life becomes getting himself a piece of bottom land so he can propose to Gracie Williams (Joan Leslie). Things go against him, but Alvin holds his temper and does what the Good Book tell him to do. Then World War I breaks out and Alvin is drafted. Unable to get status as a conscientious objector because of his religious beliefs, Alvin has to come to terms with the obligations of citizenship versus the dictates of scripture. The film is surprisingly even handed in showing Alvin debating the matter with his superiors. In the end he comes to the only conclusion possible for men of conscience forced to go to war: killing is justified to save lives.
On the Argonne Forest battlefield Alvin, made a corporal because of his marksmanship, becomes a hero when his unit is trapped and he single-handedly kills 25 and captures 132 prisoners. Called the "greatest civilian solider of the war" by General Pershing, York received the Medal of Honor, France's Croix de Guerre, and basically every high medal the Allies could bestow upon him. But while the film does a first-rate job of showing York's heroic exploits, ultimately it is more about the man that the solider. Cooper's sense of dignity is well-suited to the role, which gives more weight to York's life in the hills of Tennessee than to the war in Europe.

I can't give it 6. This is probably one of the top 5 movies ever! Cooper is phenomenal. The real Alvin York, probably America's least known hero, told Hollywood that he would allow them to make the movie if Cooper portrayed him, they told the whole story, and no glamour girl portrayed the women. This movie hits the mark. While it does show how President Wilson abused the rights of the religions that are against fighting and war, I believe the message of a man's convictions and how he must kill to save other lives is powerful and applicable in today's society. Believable presentation of York's life before, during, and after the war is the hallmark of the movie. A classic for generations to come.

This is one of the best American films ever. It stands out as a monument to America's greatest era. It has the most representative American actor of all times, Gary Cooper, and possibly the second best American director ever, Howard Hawks. It's a piece of Americana. It's a religious, patriotic, social, and political film, but above all, it's a masterpiece. Its key moment (truly beautiful) is when York is rummaging about his dilemma between God or Country. Then he finds those illuminating verses: "to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's". Ask yourself if in 2007 Americans are giving each its due (or rather stealing from them).

The film is respectuful to the religious beliefs of people. It portrays the commonsense and hardships of hardworking country folk with no abuse or ridicule; it is emotional and funny; it is realistic and sensitive. It has great trench war scenes, wonderful family gathering scenes, and beautiful settings in the country. Nobody but Hawks (or John Ford) could have risked making this complicated film, and come up with something so perfect. It's embarrassing to think of what could be done today with a story like this one, especially when political, social and religious elements are involved. Hawks handles every thread of the story amazingly.

Curiously enough the real Alvin York requested that Cooper play the leading role, and would not accept anyone else (to allow the rights for the story), and he also requested that the girlfriend didn't "drink, smoke or swear"; and she does a splendid performance too (she was only 16).

The extra disc comes with 2 documentaries, one 1/2 hour long, about the story of the real York, and another, some 50 minutes about Cooper's career, and hosted by Clint Eastwood. Pretty good both.

This movie is based on a real life story about a man who is saved by Jesus Christ and then goes off to war. Unlike the war movies made today, the plot revolves around the man's faith in God, (which might be why they never show this movie on the networks, although its a classic).
Sergeant York gets saved in a church after being struck by lightening, and after he is saved he is drafted, and spends time reconciling doing what Christ commands with killing people during time of war. (This isn't an easy thing to reconcile, and perhaps especially for a newly saved person, even if most movies act like its nothing.)
After reading the bible however, York finds the answer, and goes to war, becoming one of America's great heroes, and in the end, he and his future wife are greatly blessed by God.
If all this sounds too heavy, it isn't. Sergeant York is from Tennessee and the movie is actually quite light hearted. I also enjoyed hearing the hymn 'Give me that Old Time Religion'.
One of my favorite movies, and worth getting if you are tired of the trash they put on tv, and want some films with Christians in them.
