Screened in 35mm. Shot on location in Lone Pine, CA, this tale of two war buddies returning home to find the family ranch under new ownership contains a powerful depiction of shell-shock and its impact on veterans of the “Great War.” With live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.

Directed by William Wyler | Starring Fred Humes, Louise Lorraine, and William Bailey 
Written by Robert F. Hill and George H. Plympton | Preserved by the Library of Congress

Before or after the film, check out The Silent West, an exhibition featuring highlights of American West–themed posters from the silent film era. The posters showcase a stunning art form in a remarkable era of commercial lithography.
