Richard Todd, Ronald Reagan and Patricia Neal star in this sensitive adaptation of John Patrick's play focusing on a proud Scottish soldier who has little time to live, and the friendships he eventually makes among those around him. A huge success in 1949, The Hasty Heart received two Golden Globes, as well as an Oscar nomination for Todd for his performance as the surly, mistrustful Corporal MacLachlan. This classic film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.

The Hasty Heart

Burma, 1945: a group of Allied soldiers languishes in a military hospital, each man longing for the day he may return home. Easy-going 'Yank' shares a ward with Londoner 'Tommy', New Zealander 'Kiwi', Australian 'Digger', and 'Blossom', a Basuto African who speaks no English; all are in the care of the  sympathetic Sister Margaret Parker. When told they will be joined by a young Scot who – unbeknown to him – has but weeks to live, they react with a mixture of compassion and trepidation. But little could have prepared them for the gruff recalcitrance and downright hostility of Cpl. Lachlan 'Lachie' MacLachlan...
