Today We Live ★★½ 1933

Triangle love story set in WWI. Crawford is a hedonistic Brit having a fling with her naval brother's (Tone) friend (Young). When American flyer Cooper appears she sets her sights on him but soon he's off to combat in France where he's reported killed. Crawford returns to Young but, naturally, reports of Cooper's death have been greatly exaggerated and the two eventually reunite. Faulkner co-scripted from his story “Turn About” which had no female character and concerned the rivalry between naval officers and fly boys. 113m/B VHS . Gary Cooper, Joan Crawford, Franchot Tone, Robert Young, Roscoe Karns, Louise Closser Hale; D: Howard Hawks; W: Dwight Taylor, William Faulkner, Edith Fitzgerald.
