A Farewell to Arms (1932)
A Farewell to Arms is a 1932 American film drama by Frank Borzage. The screenplay is based on the eponymous novel by Ernest Hemingway. The American Fred Henry is during the First World War for the Italian Army in action. As far as possible, he and his buddy Captain Rinaldi try to enjoy themselves between missions. One day, Henry falls in love with the beautiful nurse Catherine. But timing and circumstances for a young love are extremely unfavorable, especially since he is ordered back shortly afterward to the front. The pregnant Catherine decides to flee to Switzerland to wait there for her sweetheart. The turmoil of the devastating war and the difficult to bridge distances put the happiness of the two to a hard break.
The novel was filmed in 1957 again starring Rock Hudson and Alberto Sordi.
