Good old war movies

Personally, I prefer the war movies with a strong antiwar message. Like All quiet on the western front (Im Westen nichts Neues (1930)), based on Erich Maria Remarque's novel, or Kubrick's Paths of glory, with excellent Kirk Douglas as Col. Dax.
On the other hand there's an old war movie that I like, promoting patriotism and heroism, but what was understandable, considering the times when it was produced. A charming role by Gary Cooper playing a real Great war hero.
