A great film. Nothing has really changed since this film, that's why it's so amazing to watch.

You may find a VHS on ebay. I am not sure if it has been released on DVD. This is one of those films that must get a DVD/Bluray release.

King Vidor's The Crowd is a silent classic about an ordinary man in the big city, and like a lot of ordinary men, he has the ambition to not be so ordinary. Perhaps like many, he thinks the American Dream is owed him, but he's lacking either the will, the talent, or the connections to make it happen. That Vidor keeps this so light and breezy through most of the run time despite its lead heading for self-made tragedy is a triumph. The other triumph is just how inventive Vidor is with the camera. It's extremely mobile on location, and he uses special effects to achieve some impressive shots. He also understands his theme, with "the crowd" being used a number of ways in the film, as John tries to stand out from it. And yet another triumph is that you care what happens even though John isn't a good person, worker, husband or father. His wife Mary is a bloody saint! Audiences in the Roaring 20s rejected this, but Vidor seems prescient in his depiction of the struggles of the common man during the coming Great Depression.

How are you guys seeing this? It's not in the public domain (so it isn't on YouTube or Internet Archive), there's no DVD, and it's hasn't played on TCM for a while.

I really don't want to have to download it....
