      King Vidor

      King Vidor

      Highest Rated: 100% The Big Parade (1925)

      Lowest Rated: 14% Solomon and Sheba (1959)

      Birthday: Feb 8, 1894

      Birthplace: Galveston, Texas, USA

      King Vidor's films range across all genres, but they are unified by a concern with the struggle for selfhood in a pluralistic, mass society. Influenced both by D.W. Griffith's realism and Sergei Eisenstein's montage aesthetic, Vidor has come closer to reconciling these strains than any other American director.
