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 in, the rough-and-ready Dubliner served his adopted nation with rare dedication, establishing himself as an inspriational 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 wold beome America's heroes and presidents.

I love Tyrone Power movies, he was such a passionate actor. I think this was one of his greatest roles.
Even though the movie is pretty long I think the story was well shaped and the characters are people you would want as a friend or a comrade in the Armed forces!

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
