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. I found this movie to be a confusing mix of propaganda, humor, and depictions of the grim realities of war. Since it features a real regiment, with some characters who really fought in the war, it does give us a picture of that time.
