What do y'all think of The Red Badge of Courage? It was a book I was completely ambivalent about in high school, so it wasn't high on my list of films to watch. Only my regard for Audie prompted me to do so. Wow! I'm so glad I did. I think it's sensational! Also, I think Audie gives a brilliant performance...without question, the best of his career (of the 2 dozen films I've seen.)
It would have been even better if it hadn't had so much edited out of it. The cut parts are gone forever too. It wasn't a hit when it was released, but is a classic now. I agree his performance was outstanding.
