Starring: John Gilbert, Renee Adoree, Claire Adams, Hobart Bosworth, Karl Dane
One of the most moving and impactful depictions of war, director King Vidor's remarkable silent classic marches onto Blu-ray in a revelatory 4K digital restoration from the rediscovered original camera negative. Wealthy James Apperson (John Gilbert) deploys as a soldier in World War I France and grows from a naive kid into a battle-hardened veteran as he and his two buddies are paraded toward the front. The film fiercely captures the heroism of the ordinary foot soldier struggling to survive, and how James' determination to return to the village girl (Renee Adoree) he loves faces the ultimate test. Other great war epics would follow, but "The Big Parade", a bracingly human and brutally vivid box-office hit, set the bar first and set it high.
