The Fighting 69th

James Cagney is a smart-aleck from Brooklyn in this Warner Bros. film.  Pat O'Brien plays the sentimental, iconic role of Father Duffy, the beloved and much-decorated real-life chaplain of the legendary Irish-American army regiment of World War I. The time is 1918, on the battlefields of France, and the Fighting 69th prepares to engage German forces in WWI's final offensive, the Battle of the Argonne.

 Runtime is 90 minutes.
