Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
An ambitious anti-war movie that combines politics, romance, nationalism, and morality, The Young Lions was a distinctive entry in the post-World War II re-examination of Hitler's legacy. Released in 1958, it was one of the few important movies from that era that questioned conventional attitudes about the war. Adapted from Irwin Shaw's best-selling novel, the would-be-epic was daring enough to disturb censors. In his first attempt at a German accent, Marlon Brando continued his image-smashing roles by portraying a disillusioned Nazi officer. In his first dramatic role, comedian Dean Martin also confounded expectations. Montgomery Clift played an American Jewish soldier who fights anti-Semitism on all fronts. The rambling plot includes romantic entanglements for all the principals, but it manages to maintain a challenging edge. Unsettling and brooding, the drama was directed by Edward Dmytryk from a screenplay by Edward Anhalt.

Very good epic adaptation of Irwin Shaw's 'war is hell' best seller depicting the events of three soldiers--one German, two American--during WWII. As Christian, the disillusioned Nazi, a very blond Marlon Brando dominates this film with a compelling performance. The American soldiers, portrayed by Dean Martin and Montgomery Clift, fare less well. Martin's performance is neglible, while Clift's role as Noah too closely mirrors his performance as Pruitt in FROM HERE TO ETERNITY. In supporting roles, Maximilian Schell and May Britt are memorable, repectively, as Brando's commanding officer and as Schell's beautiful but adulterous wife.
