The Long Gray Line is a standout drama on West Point.

For Tyrone Power the role of Marty Maher, Irishman through whose eyes the story is told, is a memorable one. Maureen O’Hara brings to the role of Maher’s wife her Irish beauty and seldom displayed acting ability. Both are very fine.

Robert Arthur’s exceptionally well-fashioned production is based on Bringing Up the Brass, the autobiography of Maher’s 50 years at the Point which he wrote with Nardi Reeder Campion. A screenplay that is full of wonderfully human touches gives just the right foundation for John Ford to show his love for country (and the Irish) with his direction. Story oscillates between unashamed sniffles and warm chuckles, Ford not being afraid to bring a tear or stick in a laugh.
