4.0 out of 5 stars The Pick of the Pecks Jan. 24 2004
By W. GRUENDLER I I - Published on Amazon.com
Here's a film that no decent Gregory Peck fan should be without. Perhaps this is why the video is OUT OF STOCK?? Or perhaps the subject matter - The Great Patriotic War - is unpopular in these days of glory in occupied Iraq? The things that strike me about this film, apart from Peck's rawboned, wide-eyed performance (yes, his VERY FIRST) are the deep B&W photography and the treatment of children in the movie.... it's as though much of the story is seen through their eyes. Indeed, "Enemy at the Gates" owes a plotline to "Days of Glory". In fact, I am gonna go ahead and put this on my list of grand all-time war movies 'about' children, right up there with Boorman's "Hope and Glory" (similarity intentional, Bro. John?); "Come and See"; "Empire of the Sun"; "The North Star"; "Back to Bataan"; and of course "Mrs. Miniver". Perhaps YOU can add others?

5.0 out of 5 stars Old movie Dec 14 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This iis Gregory Peck's first movie role. The film was made back when Stalin was good ole uncle Joe. So pre Korea, pre Mac Carthy, pre the USSR getting their very own bomb. This is a good dramactic tale for a WWII movie. I'm not sure just how they did it but the German tanks in this film look just like, German tanks ... something that I don't think happened again in an American film until Kelly's Heros.

4.0 out of 5 stars War Effort from Casey Robinson and Jacques Tourneur Aug. 28 2001
By gobirds2 - Published on Amazon.com
The year was 1944. Screenwriter and producer Casey Robinson wanted to chronicle the harrowing and valiant resistance of the Russian people against the Nazi military machine that invaded their homeland in 1941. To give the film a look of realism Robinson went outside Hollywood to find fresh young faces for the leads. He cast New York theatre actor Gregory Peck and ballerina Tamara Toumanova to star. Robinson got Jacques Tourneur to director based on his imaginative work (CAT PEOPLE) for producer Val Lewton. There are some good action sequences but the film is weighed down by Robinson's own script that is full of long stretches of dialogue and many romantic interludes which detracts from the intended theme of the film. The film's greatest assets are Gregory Peck's performance as Vladimir the leader of the Russian resistance and Academy Award Nominated Special Effects by Vernon L. Walker.

3.0 out of 5 stars World War 2 film about Russian resistance April 7 2012
By Dr. James Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Days of Glory" belongs to that unfortunate set of films (e.g., "The North Star", "Our Russian Front", "The Battle of Russia", "The Boy from Stalingrad", "Mission to Moscow", "Song of Russia") that glorified the Russian struggle against the Nazis in World War 2, and then got caught in the political winds of change during the Cold War, and quickly disappeared.

The film takes place in 1941 outside the Russian city of Tula where a group of Russian guerillas prepares for the counterattack against the Nazis. It was based on a story by Melchior Lengyel whose work formed the basis for "Ninotcha" (1939) and "To Be or Not to Be" (1942).

This was the film debut of Gregory Peck (1912-2003) who went on to become a film icon, ranked #12 on the AFI list of Greatest Male Actors. He won an Oscar for "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962) and was nominated 4 more times ("Twelve O'clock High", "Gentleman's Agreement", "The Yearling", "The Keys of the Kingdom"). He was nominated for an Emmy in 1998 for the TV film "Moby Dick" for which he won the Golden Globe. He had two other Golden Globe nominations ("The Boys from Brazil", "Macarthur").

FWIW - despite all his war films, Peck never served in the military, being classified 4F due to a spinal injury.

This was also the film debut of Russian ballet dancer Tamara Toumanova (1919-96) who plays (guess what?) a Russian ballerina. She made only 7 films including "Torn Curtain" in which she played a Russian ballerina. She married Casey Robinson, the producer on this film.

Husky Alan Reed (1907-77) also made his film debut, as one of the partisans. He's best known as the voice of Fred Flintstone, but he was a busy actor, best known for playing Pancho Villa in "Viva Zapata" (1952).

This was the first film as a producer/writer for Casey Robinson (1903-1979) whose main claim to fame was his 1935 Oscar nomination as the writer of "Captain Blood".

Director Jacques Tourneur (1904-77) is best known for his work on films with Val Lewton, like "Cat People" (1942), "I Walked with a Zombie" (1942), and "The Leopard Man" (1943). In the 50s he transitioned to TV. This was his first big budget film for RKO.

1944 was not a strong year for films. "Going my Way" was the big multiple Oscar winner. "Gaslight" did well at the box office and won Ingrid Bergman an Oscar. Other notable films were Judy Garland's "Meet me in St Louis", "Double Indemnity", "Arsenic and Old Lace". War films were popular - "Lifeboat", "Since You Went Away", "To Have and Have Not", "Hollywood Canteen", "The Fighting Seabees", "Ministry of Fear", "Passage to Marseille", and "The Fighting Sullivans".

The NY Times called the film "artful but daring" and "grim and relentless" but disliked the heavy emphasis on dialogue rather than action, and called Peck's acting "stiff." Indeed Peck himself didn't like his performance and refused to watch the film.

Not only is the action sparse, the special effects are pretty meager. The film is clearly shot on a sound stage and there are very few on location shots.

Bottom line - an OK war film, but if you want to see a better film about the Russian struggle against the Nazis, try "The North Star".
