Episode Nineteen: The Big Parade and The Red and the White

This week, we celebrate Armistice Day with a pair of World War I movies (more or less) with King Vidor's 1925 smash hit The Big Parade and Miklós Jancsó's The Red and The White, from 1967. We'll also make our picks for Essential WWI movies, discuss the great actress/inventor Hedy Lamarr, who would have turned 99 years old this week. Also: more on the state of video stores with news from Blockbuster and TCM, a look at some upcoming Yasujiro Ozu retrospectives and the European Film Award nominations featuring a few George Sanders favorites.
