  Battleground (1949 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Battleground is a 1949 war film which tells the story of a squad of the 101st Airborne Division trying to cope during the Battle of the Bulge at Bastogne, Belgium.
This film was notable for being the first post-World War II film to portray American soldiers as vulnerable and human, as opposed to inspirational and gung-ho.
While there is no question concerning the courage and steadfastedness of the members of the squad, they each have at least one moment in the film where they seriously consider running away, or scheme to get sent away from the front line, or vocally complain about being in the situation they are in.

 Twelve O'Clock High - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The film's most significant deviation from reality comes in its climax: Armstrong, the real-world version of Savage, did not break down and have to be relieved.
Along with the 1948 film Command Decision, it marked a turn away from the optimistic, morale-boosting style of wartime films and toward a gritty realism that dealt directly with the human costs of war.
This film is widely used in both the military and civilian worlds to teach the principles of leadership.

 Madame Bovary
At the beginning of this film, Flaubert (played by James Mason) takes the stand to defend himself and tells the story of his heroine, Emma Bovary, a woman whose fantasies of romantic idealism eventually lead to her and her husband's downfall.
Throughout the film, Emma often looks at herself in mirrors and the scene at the ball when she sees herself in the mirror surrounded by suitors is a classic moment.
Critical reception of her performance at the time of the film's release was mixed.

 Fabiola / 1949 / film review / Alessandro Blasetti / Michele Morgan / Henri Vidal
The film is closely based on the work of Cardinal Wiseman and the film’s strong moral slant is evident throughout, although, unlike with so many films with a religious agenda, it does not patronise its audience by attempting to convert them to Christianity.
The film was made directly after the end of the Second World War when the Nazi atrocities were beginning to come to light and the film’s dedication is a strong indication that its production team was influenced, if not inspired, by the Holocaust.
This is a film that, despite its length and occasional faults, enchants and enthralls its audience throughout.

 Jean Cocteau - Les Enfants Terribles (Film 1949) (English)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The director, J.-P. Melville, began shooting the film while Cocteau was still engaged with Orphée, and so for a time the author led an impossibly schizoid life, working on two major films at once.
For its score, the film made the first cinematic use of Baroque music - a Bach-Vivaldi concerto - which the American composer Ned Rorem found "hauntingly right." The film preserved the hothouse climate of the book, with its insinuations of incest in the story of Paul and Elizabeth.
French critics condemned Les Enfants Terribles on moral grounds, of course, but the film was ahead of its time, prefiguring two major developments yet to come: the New Wave in filmmaking and the alienated youth of the sixties drug culture.
