  • Theatrical release: September 9, 1941. Alvin York was the most highly decorated American to fight in World War I, receiving the Medal of Honor, the French Croix de Guerre, and 400 acres of farmland from the state of Tennessee. York served as a consultant on the film. He had held on to the movie rights to his life story for years, and sold them on the condition that he be played by Gary Cooper. The specific Bible quote York claimed allowed him to decide to fight as a soldier is Mark 22:21. Hawks received his only Academy Award nomination for directing SERGEANT YORK, losing to John Ford for HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY. Impressed with screenwriter John Huston's work on SERGEANT YORK, Hawks recommended to the studio that Huston be allowed to direct his own film. Huston did, resulting in THE MALTESE FALCON. The film earned 11 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay. It won 2 Academy Awards: Best Actor (Gary Cooper) and Best Film Editing. SERGEANT YORK is also available in a colorized version.
