Street Angel (old)

  • Dir: Frank Borzage

  • USA, 1928, 102minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Janet Gaynor, Charles Farrell, Natalie Kingston

Borzage reunited with stars Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell to repeat the phenomenal success of 7th Heaven (1927). Akin to their previous masterpiece in its intense romanticism and spiritual mise-en-scène, Street Angel showcases the legendary director’s mastery of fusing expressionism with poetic realism. This mesmerising tale of two star-crossed lovers, armed only with their infatuation for each other, in a struggle against rigid societal conventions and religious hostilities, is an ode to the redemptive power of love.
