BIG PARADE, THE (1925)

Silent with live musical accompaniment by Andrew Simpson

The shock of the Great War is felt through the tender tale of a rich businessman's son (John Gilbert) who enlists, leaves for France and falls for a local girl (Renée Adorée), but loses his youthful American innocence in the trenches. A little-known fact about THE BIG PARADE is that artist Andrew Wyeth was fascinated with the film — he viewed it over and over. Many details from Wyeth's paintings — "Winter" (1946), "Christina's World" (1948) and "The Patriot" (1964) all refer to this silent epic. The screening is in collaboration with the National Museum of American History. DIR/PROD King Vidor; SCR Harry Behn, Laurence Stallings. U.S., 1925, b&w, 151min. NOT RATED
