      A couple days ago I first saw the film ‘The Fighting Sullivans’, and I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed it. It was released in 1944, and was based on the true story of the Sullivan brothers, all of whom fought in World War II (don’t want to give away the ending to you, though). The movie goes through their lives, starting at the birth

      of the oldest, to all of them in their early - mid 20s.

      Throughout the entire film, the brothers (and even the one sister) show a very strong sense of companionship, which is really quite inspiring, and actually makes me a bit jealous as I’m an only child and never got to have any experiences such as theirs. The boys go through a series of events,


      • ranging from fights to nearly drowning together.

        The cast includes: Anne Baxter as Katherine Mary Sullivan Thomas Mitchell as Mr. Thomas F. Sullivan, the father Selena Royle as Mrs. Alleta Sullivan, the mother Edward Ryan as Albert Leo Sullivan Trudy Marshall as Genevieve Sullivan John Campbell as Francis Henry Sullivan James Cardwell as George Thomas Sullivan John Alvin as Madison Abel Sullivan George Offerman, Jr. as

        Joseph Eugene Sullivan

        There are a few big names in this film, and even the less known ones did an excellent job - I thoroughly enjoyed all of their acting. I’m not going to give away any more of the ‘plot’ than I already have, as that’s for you to find out. In any case, it was an excellent film, and I certainly plan on watching it again.
