All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), directed by Lewis Milestone

Based on the novel by German World War I veteran Erich Maria Remarque, this Oscar-winning film follows a group of idealistic young German soldiers who, after enthusiastically enlisting, are assigned to the western front where they gradually succumb to the unrelenting barbarity of war.

Complementing the exhibitions World War I: War of Images, Images of War and The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill, the War on Film film series brings together three films that explore different aspects of World Wars I and II.
