Classic, Drama
A marvelously clearheaded bit of Depression-era agitprop, King Vidor's independently financed and produced 1934 fable, about an ordinary young couple who establish a communal society and lick the problems of social strife, hunger, and unemployment, is saved from excessive sentimentality by the straightforward presentation of Vidor's utopian notions and by the stylishness of his mise-en-scene. Ahead of its time, more for its treatment of the theme than for the theme itself, it found echoes in Renoir's Le Crime de Monsieur Lange.
