The movie tells the story of a young couple’s life in the huge, impersonal city of New York. Their hopes and dreams are slowly faded by the everyday struggle.
King Vidor’s dynamic direction brings expressionist style to the American Dream in The Crowd, a powerfully humanist picture about the struggle for self-actualization.
