    My memory says it was called "Johnny Got His Gun". I could be wrong though. I have never seen the movie, only the snippets from the "One" video. It's on my loooong need-to-rent list. Anyone know if it is even on DVD yet?

    I'm almost sure Jerry is correct. For some reason this title popped into my head immediately. It stars Jason Robards, so if you find a movie that he is in that has a similar title, that would be the "one".
    Sorry, just had to.[​IMG]

    That is the title of the movie. Timothy Bottoms (?) stars as a young WWI soldier horribly wounded in battle.
    If you watch, you can catch it on AMC occasionally. Here's the link to the IMDB page:
