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.
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.
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.
