Description
An inspiring true story of service and honor at West Point.

Based on the true story of Marty Maher, a humble Irish immigrant who rose through the ranks to become one of West Point's most beloved instructors, The Long Gray Line is a rousing tribute to a remarkable man and his way of life. Director John Ford and star Tyrone Power, themselves the sons of Irish immigrants, bring an extra dimension of fidelity and fervor to this inspiring biography.

Newly arrived in America, Maher's first job was as a waiter at West Point. Clumsy and boisterous, he quickly broke so much of the military academy's china that he was forced to join the army to repay his debts. But once enlisted, the rough-and-ready Dubliner served his adopted nation with rare dedication, establishing himself as an inspirational coach at West Point. Spanning 50 years and two world wars, the film shows Maher at his best, molding and motivating the young men who would become America's heroes and presidents. Filmed on location with a stellar supporting cast (including Ford favorites Maureen O'Hara, Ward Bond and Harry Carey, Jr.), The Long Gray Line) is a stirring reminder of Marty Maher's proud place in history.

          This is a true story of a great American who immigrated from Ireland and did a great service to American service men. This little known story is full of heart and humor. Both my wife and I love this movie and so do all those we share it with. I was worried when we ordered it that it would be a poor copy, but we got the full screen theater version with our order and we are very pleased. Looks great on our big screen TV.

                Comments about this product:

                John Ford fashioned a story that encompasses the love between a man and a woman, between them and the cadets they serve at West Point and about love and pride in the history of The Academy and all that it stands for. Maureen O'Hara and especially Tyrone Power are superb as the main characters, Mary and Marty Maher. They melt your heart as people who love each other and are devoted to all those around them. There are lots of references to the great leaders who were trained at West Point and the sacrifices so many made during the wars. Ultimately you come to know and feel why it is a place of great pride tor most Americans.
