Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Based on the adventures of New York's crack Irish regiment during the First World War, The Fighting 69th is a vigorously melodramatic war picture...Story is a factual presentation of the 69th's war record, from training at Camp Mills through its major engagements at the front, with fictional interpolations for dramatic purposes. It's a vivid display of soldiering under fire...Cagney has a definitely unsympathetic role as the smart-alec recruit from Brooklyn whose mental and physical fibre disintegrates under fire. His eventual regeneration through the efforts of Father Duffy (Pat O'Brien) comes too late to evince much audience sympathy for the character...Cagney scores with a highlight performance...George Brent essays the role of 'Wild Bill' Donovan, head of the outfit; Jeffrey Lynn is excellent in too-brief appearances as the poet, Joyce Kilmer, and Alan Hale is a typical tough top sergeant in the regiment.

Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.com In one of his few war films, Cagney displays his "specialty" of explosive energy...
Patrick Nash, ThreeMovieBuffs.com ...several riveting battles...a good old-fashioned war picture.
