Overview

The Long Gray Line

John Ford's inspiring The Long Gray Line comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1, and is preferable in every way to the standard full-frame image. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, and Thai subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. While this disc may be short on extras, the care taken with the picture (especially for a film as old as this one) earns Columbia/TriStar much credit.

The Long Gray Line 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Many long years ago when I was still in grade school and it was spring. The Ursuline Sisters who taught us at Rosary Cathedral School elected to give everyone &quot the afternoon off&quot and ran the movie Long Gray Line. I am of Irish descent so some predjudice applies. All the same it is a testimonial to what all immigrants went through trying to better their lives. Anyone who wants a taste of the history of the Irish and West Point would do themselves a favor in seeing John Ford's The Long Gray Line. All the aspects of life are covered and none of it is gratuitous. What a welcome relief from what is available now

As the previous review writer is, I am also an Irish Catholic and, hence, admittedly biased about The Long Gray Line. I also attended a Catholic grade school in the Fifties, and we students were also treated to an afternoon from classes to watch The Long Gray Line in the auditorium. It held a special meaning for me because my brother had just graduated from West Point the previous spring and was among the cadets who were filmed marching for the parade scenes in the movie. Shortly after the graduation ceremonies, my father took me to meet the real Marty Maher in a pub in, I believe, Highland Falls. The Long Gray Line is a timeless and powerful story of legitimate immigration.
