Sunday Cinematheque at the Chazen: It’s a Universal Picture
The Road Back | USA | 1936 | 35mm | 101 min. Director: James Whale
Sunday, April 14, 2019
Cast: John King, Richard Cromwell, Slim Summerville Intended as a sequel to All Quiet on the Western Front, this story of disillusioned German World War I veterans returning to an altered, unsympathetic home front was infamously compromised prior to its release. This restoration of James Whale’s original, more trenchant cut is an event eight decades in the making, made possible in this 35mm print by The Library of Congress in cooperation with NBCUniversal and The Film Foundation.
