The Eagle and the Hawk
Directed by Stuart Walker
Screen legends Cary Grant (North by Northwest), Fredric March (The Sign of the Cross) and Carole Lombard (Nothing Sacred) star in this classic World War I film in the tradition of All Quiet on the Western Front. The Eagle and the Hawk is a powerful anti-war drama in which Grant and March play rival pilots with opposing codes of honor. Based on a story by John Monk Saunders (Wings, The Dawn Patrol) and featuring memorable supporting roles for Jackie Oakie (The Great Dictator) and Sir Guy Standing (Death Takes a Holiday), The Eagle and the Hawk is the film that The New York Times called “a drama told with a praiseworthy sense of realism.” With top-notch direction by Stuart Walker (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), The Eagle and the Hawk still packs a punch more than 75 years later.
