Description by OLDIES.com:
Filmed in the restless years between the two World Wars, Crimson Romance is a cinematic anti-war statement highlighted by creative camerawork, an uncompromising script, daring aerial acrobatics, and a strong, idiosyncratic performance by Erich Von Stroheim. Ben Lyon, cast here as the young American ace, was an accomplished pilot in real life, flying his own planes for aerial combat scenes in Howard Hughes' 1930 masterpiece, Hell's Angels.
That each of the friends is in love with the same woman only adds to the tension...

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 139 ratings.
Because of anti-German bias before the US entry into the First Wolrd War (which was in reality quite strong), two American pilots go to Germany and join their air force. Their C.O. is Erich von Stronheim who is...well, he's Erich von Stronheim at his best. The flyers meet a German girl, both fall in love with her. The U S enters the war, the plot thinkens, one pilots switches sides, leads a raid on a German munitions dump, the other...well, I won't spoil the ending. And it all ends with a long antiwar statement that is as true today as it ever was. Strange plot I'll admit, but all in all, not bad. And oh those biplanes! I love them!
