Four Sons (7-Jun-1940)
Director: Archie Mayo
Writers: John Howard Lawson; Milton Sperling
From short story: Grandma Bernle Learns Her Letters by I. A. R. Wylie
Keywords: Drama, WWII
Four sons of a family living on the Czechoslovakia/German border take very different paths after the German invasion of their country in the early days of World War II. Beautifully filmed, it is an example of Hollywood's treatment of the crisis in Europe prior to America's entry to the war. Remake of the silent film Four Sons (1928), updated from WWI to WWII. Compare Frank Borzage's The Mortal Storm (1940).
