Description & Features+

The highest-grossing silent film of that time, as well as the first realistic war drama, tells the harrowing story of a young man's (John Gilbert) front-line experiences in World War I. One of the most moving and impactful depictions of war, director King Vidor's remoarkable silent classic marches onto Blu-ray. 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 (Renée Adorée) 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.
