Kings Go Forth

Film, Drama

Time Out says

Well-crafted but unconvincing mixture of war movie and melodramatic problem picture, with Sinatra and Curtis as GIs in France in 1944, falling out over Wood, an expatriate American girl who is beautiful but proves to be not entirely white. Daves, as so often, does a careful salvage job on a soapy script, but the best sequence is a brief jazz interlude with Curtis (giving the best performance in the film) grabbing a trumpet in a dive and (ghosted by Pete Candoli) sitting in with Red Norvo and group.
