World War I is over, let the living begin. So three German soldiers open a repair ship and get on with their lives. Erich (Robert Taylor) finds unexpected love with frail Patricia (Margaret Sullavan), Gottfried (Robert Young) falls in with a verboten anti-nationalist group, Otto (Franchot Tone) approaches each day with worldly cynicism. And through all that’s to come, the men know they will remain Three Comrades. This lyrical adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s novel is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s rare screenwriting credits. Melodrama virtuoso Frank Borzage (Seventh Heaven) directs. And as Patricia, Sullavan remains the film’s luminous soul, its cherished fourth comrade.
