Dir. John Ford. 1933, 96 mins. 16mm. With Henrietta Crosman, Heather Angel. A mother sends her son to war to prevent his marriage to a woman she disapproves of. A thoroughly unsentimental morality tale, Pilgrimage is, according to Ford biographer Joseph McBride, the director’s “first great film… one of the most extreme examples of Ford’s tendency, as a romantic pessimist, to explore the dark side of his ideals.”
