King Vidor’s silent war drama The Big Parade (1925) was the biggest hit film of the 1920s and the highest grossing film for MGM till Gone With the Wind. An early anti-war film, it is about an idle rich boy who joins the US Army’s Rainbow Division and is sent to France to fight in World War I, becomes a friend of two working class men, experiences the horrors of trench warfare, and finds love with a French girl.
