Overview
Torn between religious pacifism and patriotism, Alvin York of Tennessee went on to become World War I's most acclaimed hero. As the simple backwoods farm boy who captured 132 German soldiers during the Battle of Argonne, Gary Cooper (hand-picked by York) also won acclaim – and his first Best Actor Academy Award®.

Released in 1941 when the United States was on the brink of another war, this stirring adventure inspired thousands of enlisting men. Nominated for a total of 11 Oscars®* including Best Picture, a winner for Best Film Editing and movingly directed by Howard Hawks, it tells of a religious man's moral crisis, heroics and subsequent return to the rural life he loved, refusing to capitalize on the adulation heaped upon him. An ode to patriotism and the human spirit, Sergeant York endures as one of Hollywood's finest hours.

*Other 1941 Nominations: Best Director (Hawks), Supporting Actor (Walter Brennan), Supporting Actress (Margaret Wycherly), Art Direction/Interior Decoration, Cinematography (B&W), Original Screenplay, Scoring of a Dramatic Picture and Sound Recording.
