USA / 1927 / Silent with Music / 118 minutes / DCP

A masterpiece of the silent era, now restored to its full glory from the sole surviving nitrate print in MoMA’s collection. A triumphant synthesis of German expressionism and poetic realism, and starring the radiant Janet Gaynor, Borzage’s transcendent romance creates a stylized visual environment and a palpable emotional intimacy that champions the transformative power of love and faith. Garnered 3 Oscars at the first-ever Academy Awards, this classic remains a yardstick for all movie love stories.
