Movie Clip

Big Parade, The (1925) -- Open, Slim, Bull, Jim Opening title sequence for King Vidor's The Big Parade, 1925, introduces soon-to-be doughboys Slim (Karl Dane), Bull (Tom O'Brien) and Jim (John Gilbert).
Big Parade, The (1925) - Chewing Gum In a scene famously improvised at the whim of director King Vidor, doughboy Jim (John Gilbert) teaches French Melisande (Renee Adoree) how to chew gum, in The Big Parade, 1925.
Big Parade, The (1925) - I'm Coming Back! One wonders how King Vidor directed this mayhem, much less how doughboy Jim (John Gilbert) and French villager Melisande (Renee Adoree) found each other, as the American troops pull out in MGM's The Big Parade, 1925.
Big Parade, The (1925) - Attack Americans Jim (John Gilbert), Slim (Karl Dane) and Bull (Tom O'Brien) see their first action, in France, in this extended battle sequence photographed by John Arnold, from King Vidor's The Big Parade, 1925.
Broadway Melody, The (1929) - Boy Friend Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed's "Boy Friend" is performed by the Mahoney sisters (Bessie Love, Anita Page) who then do backstage drama with Charles King, in the rudimentary MGM musical The Broadway Melody, 1929.
Broadway Melody, The (1929) - Painted Doll MGM working out early musical kinks with "The Wedding of the Painted Doll" by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, in the studio's first all-talking film, released in February, 1929, The Broadway Melody.
Broadway Melody, The (1929) - Title Song The opening to MGM’s first all-talking picture, also a full-on musical and the first in the series, Manhattan aerials, finding leading man Charles King (as “Eddie”) in presumably a Tin Pan Alley song mill, and composer (with Arthur Freed), Nacio Herb Brown on piano, in The Broadway Melody, 1929.
Mr. Wu (1927) - The Illustrious Mandarin Wu Grand MGM sets and Maria Newman’s original score for TCM featured in the opening, as Lon Chaney appears in his first role as the senior Wu, looking to engage Muir (Claude King) for the Western style education of his grandson (Sonny Loy), in Mr. Wu, 1927.
Mr. Wu (1927) - I Go To Join My Ancestors We’ve just met Lon Chaney in his second role, as the now grown-up grandson Wu, on the occasion of his marriage (Mrs. Wong Wing as the young wife), then Chaney again, this time as the even-older, emaciated grandfather Wu, conferring with Muir (Claude King), in MGM’s Mr. Wu, 1927.
Wind, The (1928) - Lillian Gish Introduction Lillian Gish turned 90 in 1983, the year she made this introduction to Victor Seastrom's celebrated 1928 film The Wind, her version of her own agency never in dispute.
Wind, The (1928) - Awful Forsaken Place Out of town Letty (Lillian Gish) dressed up for the dance, cowboys Sourdough (William Orlamond) and Lige (Lars Hanson) both making unlikely bids for her hand, the more viable Roddy (Montagu Love) getting closer, when a storm blows up, in Victor Seastrom's The Wind, 1928.
Wind, The (1928) - Puny But Irresistible Director Victor Sjostrom’s opening, from the novel by Dorothy Scarborough, Frances Marion’s script and, in between, a story outline by star Lillian Gish, in which she, as “Letty,” begins a journey west, predatory Montagu Love as “Roddy” imposing himself, in MGM’s The Wind, 1928.
