Heroes for Sale

1933 • dir William Wellman w/Loretta Young, Richard Barthelmess, Aline MacMahon • 76 min • 35mm

HEROES FOR SALE tells the impassioned story of Tom, a WWI veteran who finds nothing but heartbreak and drug addiction after his return to the States. The universe seems to have it in for Tom as he has every imaginable obstacle to happiness thrown at him, and yet he faces it all with bravery and determination. Released during the depths of the Great Depression, HEROES FOR SALE is a haunting film – shockingly still relevant today – that manages to find a glimmer of hope in the darkest days of the country.
