Movie Reviews

Long Overdue Homage to Audie
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At long last a documentary that details the war record of a great American, this video is required viewing for all Audie Murphy fans. If there is a drawback, it skims too quickly over his film career. However, those interested in Audie's life behind the scenes in Hollywood should read A THINKER'S DAMN: AUDIE MURPHY, VIETNAM, AND THE MAKING OF THE QUIET AMERICAN. It provides fresh insights into the character of this great hero and how Hollywood treated him."
To All Audie Murphy Fans

"My husband is a huge Audie Murphy fan and watches his movies continuously (like to drive me crazy sometimes!). He had a lot of knowlegde of Mr. Murphy of both his movie and military career and so I thought this would be a great gift to add to his collection. The movie is based mostly on Mr. Murphys courageous military career. He loved it. Im certain we will watch it over and over again!:-) :-("
Biography - Audie Murphy

"I was fully satisfied with the Biography and learned more about Audie Murphy, one of America's most decorated WWII heroes. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in WWII history."
WWII's Best

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This biography is an excellent addition to Audie Murphy's exceptional autobiography and film "To Hell And Back." Biographies in and of themsleves are difficult to research. When your topic is raised in abject poverty the task is even more daunting. It is impossible to get in the mindsets of our peers that have great personal integrity at a young age as well as great courage under the most demanding of circumstances, war. The author succeeds. Knowing the back story of the most decorated man in WWII is fascinating. Understanding that courage can only truely be understood by his fellow soldiers, of all eras, who have looked keenly into the eyes of death and chosen the high road. I have had the great privelege of walking with heros. It is my loss that my only personal contact with Audie was at a movie premier in Great Falls, Montana. I was a child and had no idea I was in the presence of a Valhalla worthy warrior."
