One of the great films of all time. John Gilbert stars as a callow lad
from a wealthy family who joins up at the start of World War I. The
film follows him through his early days in the army, his days in rural
France, and then his time at the front, and finally his return home.
King Vidor directs this amazing film, one of the best war films ever
made, with touches of humor and irony, but never losing sight of the
horrors and stupidity of war.
John Gilbert would have won the Oscar for 1925 if the awards had
started then. He's simply superb as Jack. You watch his eyes as this
films goes on. In the beginning his eyes twinkle with glee and delight
as he makes friends, finds love, and grows into manhood. Then his eyes
change and go dead as he experiences war. This is one of the great
silent film performances.
But the film also boasts great work from Renee Adoree as Melisande and
Karl Dane as the Swede. Co-stars are Tom O'Brien as Bull, Hobart
Bosworth and Claire McDowell as the parents.
The TCM copy I have has a incredible score by Carl Davis. There is one
scene when Gilbert is off to the front and he can't find Adoree. The
music is a discordant mishmash of previously heard tunes, and the music
grows louder and louder until they find each other. The scene that
follows is heartbreaking and unforgettable.
But this film is full of great scenes, including the one where Gilbert
teaches Adoree to chew gum. So simple yet so charming. Then there's the
shower scene where Gilbert has gotten a wine barrel (hilarious) so the
guys can have a shower.
There is a great title card that reads simple: IT HAD BEGUN..... So few
words and yet so full of meaning. The battle images are among the best
and bring the full horror of war home. Vidor assembles amazing scenes
of men marching in line to death, of men trapped in shell holes, of
planes swooping over the bombed-out fields. This is an incredible
TCM host Robert Osborne mentions that THE BIG PARADE played for an
astounding 95 consecutive weeks in New York and that it rivalled THE
BIRTH OF A NATION and GONE WITH THE WIND as the biggest money-making
film of all time. This is the film that, along with THE MERRY WIDOW,
made John Gilbert the king of Hollywood in 1925. And his crown was well
deserved; he is magnificent.
