  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Un jeune Américain va s'engager en France, pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale, connaître le grand amour de sa vie et se trouver gravement blessé lors d'une attaque de tranchées ..... INOUBLIABLE ..... www.cinefiches.com

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Una escena memorable en "El gran desfile". Los soldados se acercan en busca de trincheras y caminan por debajo de árboles que parecen remecer y cobijar al enemigo. Una escena en donde el suspenso empunta. Vidor es un maestro del cine comercial; evoca el romance, (melo)drama, la acción, compone un montaje impresionante que sabe distinto al montaje digitalizado.

  3. Dignan's rating of the film The Big Parade

    One of the first films to not glorify war.

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Big Parade

    One of Gilberts best. The recent blu ray has an unreal transfer. Looks like the film was shot yesterday. One of the best transfers of one of the best silent films. I would recommend purchasing it for your home library

  5. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Big Parade

  6. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Big Parade

    I can't stand American military films and manic depressive atmosphere no longer. Two scenes are great (boot and German soldier). Rest is stereotype which is still in use. additionally, mustacheless John Gilbert looks like Boardwalk Empire's Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza).

  7. João Eça's rating of the film The Big Parade

    A brilliant masterpiece, this is one of the greatest war movies of all time, that proved its director to be a strong heir to Griffith's editing innovations. Vidor's themes are also very similar to Griffith's: basically, the Americana, or, in other words, a constant portrayal of the american society, history, politics and way of life. King Vidor, Griffith and John Ford are the definite american classic film-makers.

  8. Adam Suraf's rating of the film The Big Parade

    The second half of this King Vidor MGM spectacular features arguably the most realistic WWI battles scenes of all time, leaving the first half, which is quite playful and romantic, a distant memory. The quick, moving finale, with John Gilbert and Renee Adoree, is that much more hard earned for the brutal action scenes prior.

  9. oldfilmsflicker's rating of the film The Big Parade

    the war scenes in this film were just astonishingly poetic.
