1930
Lewis Milestone’s All Quiet on the Western Front is an American epic war film based on the Erich Maria Remarque novel of the same name. The film is widely considered a realistic and disturbing account of warfare in World War I.

Steven Spielberg credits Milestone’s work as partial inspiration for Saving Private Ryan (1998). Later, Spielberg directs War Horse (2011), another war drama, this time set during World War I, which is also inspired by All Quiet on the Western Front.
