This wartime tale of unrequited love is based on the phenomenally successful novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, who also wrote ‘All Quiet on the Western Front.’ Dr. Ravic (Charles Boyer) is practicing medicine illegally in Paris, having fled the Nazis in his native Austria with his life. He meets Joan Madou (Ingrid Bergman) in the confusion of a raid, who he helps and who falls in love with him. When Ravic is deported, Madou moves in with ne’er-do-well Alex (Stephen Bekassy), which proves to be the biggest mistake of her life.
Arch of Triumph was remade as a television movie in 1985 starring Anthony Hopkins and Lesley-Anne Down.
