The Big Parade (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: If you’re like me and had missed this movie up until now, then that’s something you should correct right now.  This is a powerful film that works just as well now as it did in 1925 and it’s been beautifully restored by Warners who spent a pretty penny doing so.  The video and audio quality is great and the extras are diverse and interesting and really add quite a bit to the overall experience.

The Big Parade (Digibook)

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'The Big Parade' stands as a monumental achievement in the annals of silent cinema. King Vidor's epic chronicle of a trio of American soldiers who ride the wave of patriotism into the horrors of World War I remains an impressive piece of filmmaking in a primitive age. Though a bit bloated and draggy in places, the story's core emotions always come through, and the artistry and spectacle still dazzle some 88 years after the movie's premiere.

The Big Parade Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: Sticklers among the Blu-ray public may note that The Big Parade is technically not part of the Warner catalog, since it came from the MGM library that Warner acquired in the Nineties. To that point, I would answer, simply: Amen! Despite reports of its recent recovery, MGM lacks both the financial wherewithal and, currently, the in-house expertise to undertake a restoration of the delicacy and magnitude required by a film of this vintage and importance.

  • Conclusion: The long trip back to 1925 needed to see The Big Parade will discourage some from checking this World War I drama out, but approaching its 90th anniversary, it remains an enjoyable trip worth taking. Dated stylistically, the film nonetheless holds your interest with comedy and romance elements that give way to slightly less scintillating war action without losing you.
