"The Red Badge of Courage"
"John Huston Week!" concludes at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing Huston's war classic, a film "brutalized" with recuts following its original trailer debut, "ranking only with 'The Magnificent Ambersons' as a movie that was changed substantially after the preview."

Audie Murphy goes back to war and doesn't like it. Still the best film version of Stephen Crane's classic Civil War saga despite being metaphorically dragged from the back of a truck by MGM. Lillian Ross's devastating, essential reportage on the unmaking of this film can be ordered here.
