Description:
 We start the Spring film series with one of the most influential movies about World War I. All Quiet on the Western Front is the story of a group of friends who join the Army during World War I and are assigned to the Western Front, where their fiery patriotism is quickly turned to horror and misery by the harsh realities of combat. The movie is based on a novel by Erich Maria Remarque, German author and a veteran of World War I. The film is directed by Lewis Milestone and won Oscars for Best Picture and for Milestone's direction. Steve Hunt will present and lead a discussion after the movie. (1930, 132 min, NR)
