Pioneering French director Abel Gance gave this epic silent tale of the railroad the scope of a great novel. His simple story depicts an unusual romantic triangle involving a father, a son and the young girl they had made a part of their family years earlier. Gance spent three years filming on location, developing revolutionary techniques like freeze frames, rapid cutting and expressive lighting to maximize the story's emotional impact. Two-disc set includes recently restored print, new score by Robert Israel, BTS featurette, original press book, more.
