(King Vidor, US 1925, 151 min., 35mm)

King Vidor provides a supremely humane and unflinching view of the terrors facing Americans who were uncertain of how to deal with the residual pain of World War I. This poignant account of idealistic, naive John Gilbert’s spiritual maturing in the trenches was the first and perhaps best American WWI epic. It remains a brilliant piece of filmmaking and a celebration of inner strength and love that needs to be seen on the big screen. This is a special screening of a 1931 reissue print with a recorded soundtrack.
