The Long Gray Line (1955)- John Ford on the widescreen

John Ford’s first Cinemascope venture The Long Gray Line (1955) opens with wall to wall singing cadets, an effective demonstration of how a master director fills the 50’s widescreen with emotion- Certainly brings John Ford magic to today’s large TV HD screens! Catch this underrated masterpiece where Tyrone Power plays the Irish immigrant who became a fixture at West Point with great support from Ford regulars Maureen O’Hara, Donald Crisp, and the great Ward Bond.
