Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: This must be Kerry McLane as young Joe (pictured) in light blue bibs, possibly with thin hickory stripes. I don’t like war movies, but this is a good bib scene with a boy being embraced by his dad. Famous film after novel by Dalton Trumbo. There was also a remake in 2008 and a stage play in 1982. I don’t know this movie, but I assume few bib scenes at the beginning before WWI. Maybe also some flashbacks. I have to see this complete film, for now I already rate 6. Interesting also, that there are such bibs in 1890s before WWI.
