All The Young Men (1960)/Lost film

January 15th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1960's, Lost film, Oregon film old definition, Oregon location (cameo)

The enormous box office success of The Defiant Ones (1958), starring Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis, made clear Sidney Poitier was ready for Hollywood. Hollywood, however, was not ready for him. All The Young Men, written for Poitier, was impossible to finance until Alan Ladd stepped in and both produced and co-starred.

All the Young Men (Hall Bartlett; Columbia) expertly blends two traditions rich in cinematic cliche—the war movie and the fearless-denunciation-of-race-bigotry movie. Sidney Poitier, an accomplished actor so discriminated against because of his color that he will probably never be allowed to play a character who is not strong, sensitive and noble, is a Marine sergeant whose unit is chopped to pieces during a Korean war skirmish. The only officer dies, and Poitier takes over, despite a near mutiny by Paul Richards, a race-baiter who calls him “night-fighter.” and Alan Ladd, a surly type who has little use for Negroes, and who is also jealous because he had outranked Poitier until a recent demotion.

From the 1960 Time magazine review of All The Young Men.

Some of this Korean war drama was shot on Mt. Hood. I hereby claim All The Young Men as an Oregon film.

Has anyone seen All The Young Men?
