Westfront 1918

Vier von der Infanterie
[Four From the Infantry]

1930

G. W. Pabst
Director

The horrors of WWI as seen through the eyes of four comrades.

Overshadowed by All Quiet on the Western Front, this German made anti-war film still packs a wallop, being slightly grittier than it's more illustrious Hollywood contemporary.

Some guesses on the vidcaps, André Saint-Germain is either the French soldier fighting with the student or the penultimate French soldier methinks. Think that is Gustav Püttjer identified though (unless he's the clown).
