(1928) Extraordinary picture of ordinary American life follows a young man (James Murray) as he comes to New York, gets work as a clerk in a big company, marries (Eleanor Boardman), tries to make good but loses his job and goes on the skids until the tragic death of his little boy shocks him out of self-pity and into trying again. Director King Vidor’s silent masterpiece achieves its impact not through plot or story devices but by capturing the human details of everyday life from its simple joys to it humdrum routines which viewers recognize as not far different from their own. Domestic problems and the intensely felt loss of a child. (A-II --  adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)
