The Big Red One: The Reconstruction


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Samuel Fuller. 1980-2005, 158 mins. 35mm. With Lee Marvin, Mark Hamill, Robert Carradine. Drawn from his own experiences fighting in the First Infantry Division in World War II, The Big Red One was Sam Fuller’s most personal and ambitious movie. Heavily edited for its initial release, the film was reconstructed 25 years later, with nearly 40 minutes of additional footage, by film critic Richard Schickel. This epic follows a sergeant and the inner core members of his unit as they attempt to survive World War II.
