What Price Glory: A Call to Action: The Films of Raoul Walsh

Film - Feature | July 27 | 6 p.m. | PFA Theater, 2575 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, Ca 94720

Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Released a year after the very successful The Big Parade, What Price Glory is Walsh’s first high-caliber war film and it’s camouflaged beneath the same antiwar sentiment as the former. Unusually gritty battle scenes wallow in the muck of trenches even Kubrick would be proud of. But the real terrain to be taken is that of masculine rivalry. In roles they would reprise three times, Victor McLaglen and Edmund Lowe begin as suitors to the very suitable Dolores Del Rio, until the dreary realities of war arrive. Adapted from a notably bawdy play, lip-readers had a field day as McLaglen and Lowe dropped some profane bombshells.

• Written by James T. O’Donohoe, based on the play by Laurence Stallings and Maxwell Anderson. Photographed by Barney McGill, John Marta, John Smith. With Victor McLaglen, Edmund Lowe, Dolores Del Rio, William V. Mong.
