GREENLIGHT #76: Flyboys (with "The Great Waldo Pepper" and "All Quiet on the Western Front")

Ann and Les liked Flyboys (2006) well enough, particularly when it's in the air. Watching those bi-planes in action was thrilling. Watching James Franco and his pals on the ground was a bit dull. They're pretty impressed, however, that director Tony Bill got this film made because World War I does not garner a lot of screen attention. Les and Ann just wish the attention it got was of a little better quality. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends an underappreciated film about bi-planes called The Great Waldo Pepper (1975) directed by George Roy Hill and starring Robert Redford with a bit part by a young Susan Sarandon. Ann recommends Lew Ayres in the granddaddy of all war films, especially ones about World War I, called All Quiet on the Western Front (1930.)
