There is no official DVD of WHAT PRICE GLORY? (1926) from Fox, and never has been. I hope that there will be eventually. This is a major Silent that has never been commercially available except from 16 Millimeter dupes. Anything being sold out there is bound to be a sub-par bootleg.


Based on the popular stage success, WHAT PRICE GLORY? was Fox attempt to try to top MGM's unprecedented success with King Vidor's Masterpiece THE BIG PARADE (1925). While I like it allot, it is nowhere near as good as THE BIG PARADE was. Even though both stories were pinned by the same screen writer one Lawrence Stallings.


In-fact King Vidor had intended to make WHAT PRICE GLORY?, and discovered that the rights were snapped up by Fox. So he settled on THE BIG PARADE instead. Thank goodness that He did! Yet by the time WHAT PRICE was ready for release THE BIG PARADE had become measuring stick of any war or for that matter non War picture made in Hollywood.


While WHAT PRICE GLORY? made Delores Del Rio a major Star, her Character of "Charmaine" lacks the warmth, and endearing quality's of Renee Adoree's precious "Melisande" in THE BIG PARADE. Victor McLaglen and Edmund Lowe are allot of fun as the two feuding officers Flagg, and Quirt. However, the trio of Jim (John Gilbert), Bull (Tom O'Brien), And Slim (Karl Dane), in THE BIG PARADE are much more human, and likeable.



The Critics Choice VHS of WHAT PRICE GLORY? is poor quality with a good, but badly muffled Piano score by William Perry recorded back in the early 70's. However, if you want to see some DVD-R clips of the film from a 35 millimeter master with it's vintage Erno Rapee-Lew Pollack Fox-Movie tone score in a very nice sharp print, just click on the following links here.
