Movie Review: THE FIGHTING 69TH

Bitter Tea and Mystery watched and reviewed The Fighting 69th for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

This movie is a film about events in World War I produced by Warner Brothers in 1940, at a time that the second World War was escalating in Europe.
