Competition: ‘A Farewell to Arms’ *closed*

Based on the best-selling novel by Ernest Hemingway, Frank Borzage’s Oscar-winning film adaptation of the tragic Great War romance A Farewell to Arms (1932) has been newly restored by Lobster Films and will be made available to own on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format Edition. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Farewell to Arms this coming Monday (22 September), we’ve kindly been provided with THREE Dual Format copies of Borzage’s acclaimed melodrama to give away to our readers, courtesy of our always accommodating friend at the British Film Institute. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

An impossibly handsome Gary Cooper stars as the somewhat cynical Lieutenant Frederic Henry, an American enlisted in the Italian army to drive ambulances during the war. Through his doctor friend, Rinaldi (Adolphe Menjou), he meets Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes), an English nurse whose fiancé was killed at the Somme. What starts as a flirtatious and casual encounter soon develops into something much deeper – but can their passion survive the terrible consequences of the war? A hugely popular film when it was first released in 1932, A Farewell to Arms was nominated for four Oscars, winning Best Cinematography (Charles Lang) and Best Sound (Franklin Hansen and Harold Lewis).
