I know there was a 1979 war film called "Breakthrough", starring Richard Burton and it was a sequelt to the 1977 film "Cross of Iron".


However, I seem to remember many years ago watching a movie also called "Breakthrough". It was an old black and white film from the early to mid 50's. Do not remember much at all about it except that it was about an infantry unit in the hedgerows of Normandy, and one of the characters was always taking vitamin pills and doing pushups. I think the focus was on the platoon leader and his relationship with his cpatian and with his men.


Anyone remember this movie? Am I remembering the title right?

You are indeed. Released in 1950, the film starred David Brian, John Agar and Frank Lovejoy.


It was released on VHS, so if you look around, you may be able to find a copy.
