ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY

Sergeant York: Of God and Country chronicles how Alvin York’s story was brought to the screen in the 1941 film, Sergeant York, starring Gary Cooper. The documentary explores casting decisions, script development, performances, characters, shooting topics, and production problems. It also examines the complex political environment in America, in which isolationism, anti-Semitism, and the war in Europe almost derailed the film. Gary Cooper won his first Best Actor Oscar for his performance. The documentary is narrated by Liam Neeson and written and directed by John Mulholland.
