Editorial Reviews

The Big Picture is a documentary television program which ran on ABC from 1953 to 1959. The program consisted of documentary films produced by the United States Army Signal Corps' Army Pictorial Service, showing biographies of famous soldiers, weaponry, and historical battles.

After The Big Picture s run on ABC ended, it aired in syndication for several more years, running on local television stations well into the early 1970s.

Volume One of this acclaimed series focuses on the KOREAN WAR.

I was a little too young to know much about the Korean war, as well as some of the other wars. so I have been watching these documentaries. This one was very good, You feel the cold and heat, the marching first north then south, and then back again as circumstances changed. The everyday life and death are portrayed here. If you are looking for knowledge, this was good.

For a guy who was their from early July 50 to mid April 1951 was not really to much said about it and different outfits.
It does start out like it was lots of space between front line outfits and we just keep pulling back, till we got to the river, and that was great a moth of not bathing in mid summer is ripe in any mans world
Then not much on us in No Korea or the start of another retreat.
FOR THE EARLY GUY WANTING TO SEE THAT PART AGAIN I WOULD SAY SAVE YOUR MONEY

My Dad was in this war and I bought it to see if I could find a photo of him in it. I did'nt. While the film itself was interesting. The narration was your typical and boring Army Training film commentary. Its a pity as this film subject has potential. But as my Dad would of said, "Just another forgettable film about America's forgotten war"

Good quality of picture but too much propaganda on English commentary for the US Army. If you are in Army, you might like it.
