All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) war drama (playlist - complete)
    Won "Best Production" (Picture), and Best Director Oscars for 1929-30

Seven Days Leave (1930) law and order drama added 4 Sep 09
    starring Gary Cooper, Beryl Mercer
    based on James M Barrie's "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals"
A childless cleaning lady Beryl Mercer, during WWI, creates a fictional son, so she can also say that her son is at the front, and brags about him to her friends.  The jig is up, when the local rector accidentally meets a soldier Gary Cooper with the name surname and decides he must be her son. When Gary and Beryl meet, at first he is incensed, but then cools down, and they become friends.  He finally agrees to maintain the charade, as he has no one else to watch out after him anyway.
A scratchy cut of this movie.  You know some of Gary's acting here is pretty, how shall we say... bad.  His fault? Or the bad direction and production.  Sort of a disappointment.  See below for a much better Cooper movie.  Beryl steals this one.  She is perfect as his fantasy mother.

A love triangle, two brothers, one woman, during World War I.  Lots of battle scenes and airplanes.  Jean while dating the older brother, seduces the not-unwilling younger brother as well.  All three enlist for the war. It appears that the very end of this film might be cut off, but you'll see the climax.
