Considered lost, and certainly forgotten, John Ford's 1933 "Pilgrimage" has been digitally restored, and DVD-intact, it has returned; on a two-feature transfer with Ford's 1930 Army-gangster film, "Born Reckless(starring Edmund Lowe)". We have found an early John Ford classic, thanks to Berkeley film archivist David Shepard. "Pilgrimage" is the story of Hannah Jessop and her son, Jimmy, alone and together, on an Arkansas farm. Jimmy falls in love, and wants to marry. Hannah will have none of it. Hannah Jessop is a hard-hearted old woman, proud of her descent from pioneers. When her son falls in love and declares his independence, Hannah is confronted with the dilemma of losing her son. Hannah's solution is chilling: she enlists him in the army. As she puts pen to paper, she is signing what is clearly her son's death warrant, as World War I rages in Europe. To Mary, the girl he loves, she says: "I'd rather see him dead than married to you". In a short scene, on a French battlefield, Jimmy is killed, buried alive in a collapsing trench. Hannah is notified of his death by the town major. Her grief is real, but her stoical nature will allow no verbal expression. John Ford instead conveys her deepest inner fealings in one of the most heartrending moments of visual poetry; her hands are seen reassembling the pieces of a ripped-up photograph of her smiling son. Romantic pessimism unveils the dark side of John Ford. 10 years later, Hannah is coaxed into joining a boatload of other Gold Star Mothers who make a pilgrimage to their sons' graves in France. Ford's comic spirit is seen in the raucous Carolina hillbilly Tilly Hatfield, who befriends Hannah on the boat to France. The earthy, pipe-smoking Tilly has already lost three sons in war.Read more ›

Pilgimage is, as its title indicates about a journey in human and geographic terms with none of the the Ford ingredients but beautifully rendered just the same. An elderly and mean woman learns that her son has died in battle and , at the behest of the U.S. government, along with quite a few others in the smae situation, she travels to France, her sons grave, and comes to accept herself, her daughter-in-law and her grandson. Henriettea Crossman plays the lead and while she may not be name you know, you should. We all should. Born Reckless also deals with the same war but in quite an amusing way. Edmund Lowe plays, with his customary charm, a bootlegger who gets drafted...This one has all the Ford ingredients and they are served, if not piping hot, warm enough to come back for seconds.

As often is the case, I really had no expectations when I bought this set. I decided to take a chance because I normally like John Ford films.
Pilgrimage turned out to be a delight. It might be considered corny by a modern audience, but I like old movies. The plot is simple. A hard and domineering woman Mrs. Jessop sends her only son to war, viewing it as a better alternative to having her son marry the girl he loves. The son is killed in France and the mother in her hard and seemingly unfeeling way shuts herself off and doesn't allow herself to mourn or grieve publicly or even privately. The opportunity arises where a large number of gold star mothers are given the chance to visit their sons graves in France. The mothers are an odd yet interesting mix and seemingly united in their grief even ten years after WWI has ended. A series of circumstances awakens Mrs. Jessop's maternal instinct and grief and she comes to realize how wrong her actions were. She returns home and reconciles with her son's girlfriend and her now 10 year old grandson.
Henrietta Crosman plays the Mrs. Jessop role. I wasn't familiar with her. Apparently she was a long term stage actress who only appeared in a few films. Too bad that she didn't do more films because she was terrific.
Pilgrimage has been remastered beautifully and is an easy movie to watch.
The second film Born Reckless stared Edmund Lowe. The only common element between this film and Pilgrimage is a WWI theme. A petty criminal/mobster is given the alternative to a jail term. He can enlist in the army and fight overseas. This will either build his character or send him home in a box. He returns a war hero and continues his career as petty crook.
Born Reckless is a bizarre film. It is inconsistent.

Actaully 3 stars for Born Reckless and four stars for Pilgrimmage. Born Reckless is a pretty standard gangster movie (interesting for an early look at Randolph Scott and supposedly John Wayne), but Pilgrimmage is the big surprise on this disc - a lesser known Ford film that is a surprisingly mature and moving drama, graced by an outstanding performance by Henrietta Crosman in a complex (for that time) characterization. Ford, although probably most associated with John Wayne westerns (Stagecoach, The Searchers, etc.), displayed his greatest directorial skills when dealing with human drama. Interestingly enough, not one of his four Oscars (The Informer, The Grapes Of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, and The Quiet Man, all of which are must-see films) was for a western. The film occasionally slides into melodrama, but the viewer needs to remember that this was the acting style of the time. The scenes involving the mothers of young men killed in World War I are particularly memorable.
