Street Angel

Frank Borzage's 1928 follow-up to his Oscar-winning Seventh Heaven features the same stars (Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell) and a similar broadly melodramatic plot. But this overlooked work is, if anything, more intense and more articulate in its treatment of the spiritual issues that Borzage always found in his love stories. A Christian transcendentalism informs every frame, as Borzage's lovers learn to rise above the sordidness of their surroundings.
