Rating: 3/4 -- Sullavan won the New York Film Critic's prize for her role here, and it was deserved: if Ernst Lubitsch's The Shop Around the Corner stands as her best movie, then this is certainly her best performance. Full Review

Three Comrades is finely written, produced and acted, but is so filled with desolation and the shadow of impoverishment and death, that movie-goers may find it rather bitter fare as entertainment. Full Review

Description by

World War I is over, let the living begin. So three German soldiers open a repair ship and get on with their lives. Erich (Robert Taylor) finds unexpected love with frail Patricia (Margaret Sullavan), Gottfried (Robert Young) falls in with a verboten anti-nationalist group, Otto (Franchot Tone) approaches each day with worldly cynicism. And through all that's to come, the men know they will remain Three Comrades.

This lyrical adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's novel is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's rare screenwriting credits. Melodrama virtuoso Frank Borzage (Seventh Heaven) directs. And as Patricia, Sullavan remains the film's luminous soul, its cherished fourth comrade.

Product Description:

Three German Army veterans set up a business in postwar Berlin. Surrounded by poverty, they feel their lives to be meaningless until they meet a high-spirited, impoverished Englishwoman who endows them with her own transcendence. Based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actress--Margaret Sullavan.
