1 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer King Vidor's Picturization "The Big Parade" [Program]
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer 1925 Softcover Very Good- with No dust jacket as issued 
12 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , pictorial wrappers, 9.5 by 12 inches, covers neatly separated along spine, otherwise very good. Original program for the MGM movie. From Wikipedia: "The Big Parade is a 1925 silent film. It tells the story of 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. The film was groundbreaking for not glorifying the war or ignoring its human costs, exemplified by the lead character's loss of a leg from battle wounds. It heavily influenced all subsequent war films, especially All Quiet on the Western Front (1930). It was adapted by Harry Behn and King Vidor from the play by Joseph Farnham and the autobiographical novel Plumes by Laurence Stallings, and directed by Vidor. It stars John Gilbert, Renée Adorée, Claire Adams, Karl Dane, Robert Ober and Tom O'Brien."
