Home of The Brave (1949)-Underrated James Edwards

On TCM 8/17/16-In the Stanley Kramer produced and Carl Forman written Home of The Brave (1949)-I cannot stop watching on the newly released Blu-ray especially the touching scene between the much underrated actor James Edwards (Pvt. Peter Moss) and Lloyd Bridges (His childhood buddy Finch) on dangerous WWII sentry duty as they dream about opening a 50/50 owned  “type of place a guy could bring his wife” after the war where Moss does the cooking and Finch serves the drinks-and to enhance the powerful performances here is the soundtrack from the great Dimitri Tiomkin which features a choral rendition of Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.
