Cross of Iron (1977) Sam Peckinpah, James Coburn, Maximilian Schell, James Mason, Action, Drama, War
With too much action to be lumped with “antiwar” films, and too little pro-war sentiment to satisfy the bloodthirsty, this highly individualistic treatment of a wartime situation by director Sam Peckinpah was initially given a cold shoulder by critics and is based on a novel by Willi Heinrich. The story concerns Steiner (James Coburn), an ordinary soldier in the German armies, fighting on the Russian front in 1943, who has won an Iron Cross for bravery. However, his main loyalty is to his fellow soldiers and his family – not Hitler, and certainly not the army, with its hierarchy of honors. Into his life appears a new company commander, Captain Stransky (Maximilian Schell), a true believer and army man, who would give almost anything for an Iron Cross. The captain’s obstacle in obtaining this badge of honor is that he is an abject coward. Stransky’s attempt to win Steiner to his side by promoting him to Sergeant is doomed to failure, and the conflict between them escalates from there.
