What Price Glory(released July/52) is a remake of the 1926 film of the same name directed then by Raoul Walsh.Walsh had a very similar rep back then as an actor's/guy's director,just as Ford enjoyed in later years.The original starred a younger Edmund Lowe and Victor McLaglen in the main roles,while this 1952 version has James Cagney as Capt.Flagg and Dan Dailey as Sgt.Quirt,respectively.I must say I prefer the original version as it was much more raw.Also if you looked closely you could see it's leading actors actually cursing,not saying what the inter titles informed one they were.Actually it brings to mind another Raoul Walsh production in 1928 of Sadie Thompson.If you watch Gloria Swanson yelling at Lionel Barrymore she isn't verbally holding back either.And actually this was much more common in the silent era than most think.But I digress.
The story of this 1952 version has us in WW1 and Capt.Flagg seems to be one of the most despised and hard boiled leaders of men the Marines ever had.His platoon has just come back from the front and are resting in a small French village.Enter Sgt.Quirt,who is well known to Capt.Flagg and whom he busted once before for conduct unbecoming.The two will resort to fisticuffs on a moments notice,as one or the other will draw an "X"with chalk on the floor and away they go.Flagg and Quirt's on going love/hate relationship however does not interfere with war duties;that is where they think alike.Flagg knows Quirt is the best sergeant the Marines ever produced and is a useful component in the overall scheme of things.
Thrown into this mix is Charmaine(Corrine Calvet),the daughter of a local tavern owner.She is in love with both the good captain and the sergeant.She has asked the captain to marry her but he refuses.

"What Price Glory" is a World War I lover's triangle set against the ravaged backdrop of French countryside circa, 1918. Drama aside, the film is not what one might expect from the directorial giant likes of John Ford. James Cagney is a bit over the hill to be believable as Capt. Flagg, a stoic commander of a motley troupe of conscripts. Flagg's ill at ease postulating does not bode well with his men, so he turns to disrespectful and disreputable Sgt. Quirt (Dan Dailey) for a little bit of hard knock military strength. But the tensions between Flagg and Quirt are pressed to the breaking point when they both fall for the same girl - stop me if you've heard this one before. Strong performances elevate this film above the tripe that - generally - it is.
THE TRANSFER: Frankly, not up to snuff. Although the overall color scheme has retained much of its original luster, the picture quality is a disappointment. There is an excessive amount of film grain and age related artifacts throughout for a not very smooth visual presentation. Fluctuations in color balancing are - at times - severe and distracting. There is a minor amount of digital grit that further detracts from the image. Black levels are weak. Contrast and shadow delineation is poorly balanced for a very unstable looking presentation. The audio has been cleaned up but remains strident sounding and lacking in bass. EXTRAS: As with the other war films in this batch from Fox, you get nothing to augment your experience. BOTTOM LINE: "What Price Glory" isn't recommended either as a war film, or for its transfer quality. Seek satisfying your thirst for conquest elsewhere.

Taking place in World War I is the James Cagney-Dan Dailey drama "What Price Glory" made in 1952 by the legendary director John Ford. Essentially the movie is a classic love triangle story set against the backdrop of the ravaged French countryside of 1918. Cagney plays the part of Capt. Flagg, a commander in charge of a ragtag group of conscripts who must rely on the brash and disrespectful Sgt. Quirt to whip them into shape. Trouble brews though when Flagg and Quirt both fall for the same girl. The movie is a triumph for all concerned both in strong performances from the actors (including a young Robert Wagner) and a technical masterpiece from the crew. The same cannot be honestly said for the DVD. Although the picture and sound are both acceptable the quality of the overall print shows some wear and there are noticeable fluctuations in the color balance. Still for such a low price it is a title that is easy to recommend.

The movie focuses on a Marine rifle company resting and training behind the front in WW One France. Cagney and Daly turn in fine performances as the Company Commander and his 1st Sgt, respectively. They are both career Marines of long service and have developed a professional respect for each other rivaled only by their personal dislike. They both vie for the affections of the inkeeper's daughter with predictable results. The integration of fresh-faced replacements with the battleworn veteran Marines brings some lighthearted moments. The tone is more serious in the few short battle scenes and the ending where Quirt leaves Charmaine to rejoin the company moving out for the next push is one easily related by any Marine viewer. It is a remake of an earlier silent film and I regret I have been unable to obtain a copy of the original as I am sure it is excellent. However, I feel Mr. Maltin in his review above dismisses it without even viewing it. The review and synopsis don't even get the right war, referring to WW2, and seem to not realize they players are Marines. It may indeed not measure up to the silent original, but this is an entertaining movie in it's own right.
