1914 All Out DVD
Beautifully filmed in the Yorkshire Dales '1914 All Out' mixes the heartbreak of the 1914-18 War with the romance of village life. It tells the story of two brothers and their love for the same beautiful girl, Jean whose peaceful existence is shattered by the tragic events of The Great War. It is August Bank Holiday 1914 in the picturesque Yorkshire village of East Grisewold and the villagers are celebrating with a cricket match. The tranquil setting is shattered by the outbreak of War and the first army volunteers are soon leaving for Europe including Ken Houghton. Sadly, Ken is killed at the Somme and the focus shifts to his younger brother Joe who then courts his great love, Jean. Joe finally returns from War confident that he is a better cricketer and determined to win Jean's love. "1914 All Out" was written by the playwright Colin Schindler after he saw a memorial commemorating those who had fought and died in the Great War. He wondered what the effect of the loss of life would be on a small village during and after the war.
