Anyone else for the Victoria Cross?

My father used to talk of a scene from a movie, I assume World War One but who knows. At the front under heavy fire the commander tells his men that anyone who gets across the line will be awarded the Victoria Cross. A young soldier jumps up saying he'll do it and as soon as he lifts his head up he is shot dead. The commander then turns to the remaining men and asks "anyone else for the Victoria Cross"
I have heard this story all my life and would love to know the movie it came from.
