A Farewell To Arms is the 1932 adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's classic novel. The story examines the relationship between Lt. Fredric Henry (Gary Cooper) and Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes) in Italy during WWI. It begins when he arrives in Milan to visit an Italian friend Rinaldi, and Fredric and the nurse spend a night together. She is deeply hurt by this, thinking that Fredric is just using her, but he calmly tells her that it meant something to him and that he would be back. He did come back, but it was with a big injury, which allows him and Catherine to really get close to each other. Rinaldi doesn't like it, as he liked Catherine first, and tries to get Fredric to come and drink with him constantly. Later, when Fredric is healthy again, he gets sent back to the front lines, and Catherine leaves for Switzerland without telling Fredric first. She writes to Fredric constantly, even telling him that she is pregnant and can't wait to see him. He writes to Milan, where he thinks she is, and somehow all of his letters get sent back. Catherine's letters get censored by Rinaldi, saying that he doesn't want his friend to lose his head over a girl, little knowing how serious they actually were. Eventually Fredric can't take it anymore and goes back to Milan to find his love, which isn't there.moreless
