The highest-grossing silent film of all time, as well as the first realistic war drama, tells the harrowing story of a young man's (John Gilbert) front-line experiences in World War I. The film fiercely captures the heroism of the ordinary foot soldier struggling to survive, and how James' determination to return to the village girl he loves faces the ultimate test. This 1925 film is not rated and 151 minutes. This film festival is in conjunction with UNC-G's War and Peace Imagined.Return to previous page >>
