  • The Big Parade

    1925. USA. Directed by King Vidor. With John Gilbert, Renée Adorée, Hobart Bosworth, Claire McDowell, Tom O’Brien, Karl Dane. Vidor (1894–1982) had risen rapidly from independent filmmaker to the most respected director at MGM. Enormous hit that it was, The Big Parade in effect made the studio and made Vidor. For a time, it appeared that Vidor was the inheritor of D. W. Griffith’s mantle; it would be another fifteen years before John Ford finished his apprenticeship and rose to the top of the Hollywood heap. Vidor’s film is deeply moving, spectacular, and still arguably the greatest work to come out of the experience of the First World War. Silent. Approx. 125 min.
