Poppies of Flanders

Powerful wartime drama that sees rivals in love becoming comrades-in-arms in the trenches of the Western Front.

War 1928 122 mins Silent

Director: Arthur Maude


This powerful WWI drama, inspired by the famous John McCrae poem In Flanders Fields, sees rivals in love become comrades-in-arms in the bloodstained trenches of the Western Front. Sapper (creator of Bulldog Drummond) used the poem for inspiration in his story of a lonely, drunken ex-Guardsman finding a reason to live again through the love of a good woman. But she has eyes for another and fate finally draws them together on the battlefields of Flanders. A heartrending fusion of love and war.
