Published to commemorate the centenary of Erich Maria Remarque's birth, this book tells for the first time the full story of the Academy Award winning film of Remarque's extraordinary novel. When published in 1928, All Quiet on the Western Front transformed the popular image of war; the film, directed by Lewis Milestone, was released hot on its heels the following year and was instantly acclaimed a classic. It remains the quintessential view of World War One, and of the brutality and waste of war. Like the novel, however, it suffered censorship internationally: it was banned in Italy, and in Germany following violent protests, and cut elsewhere, Hollywood included.

This fascinating account covers the film's origins, production and fortunes on and after its release. Andrew Kelly's five years' research has included visits to archives around the world, viewings of all extant versions of the film and interviews with those involved in its production. The book is illustrated with scenes from All Quiet on the Western Front and uses extensive extracts from the screenplays. It will be the definitive history of this great film and is a fitting tribute to Erich Maria Remarque.
