Description by OLDIES.com:

Handsome architect John Trott is spellbound when he meets beautiful Tilly Whaley. After a whirlwind romance, they are wed. Tilly's father learns that John's mother is a prostitute and forces his daughter to return home with him. Believing he has been abandoned, John rides the rails westward to start a new life. Tilly is heartbroken when John is reported killed in a train wreck. A decade later, fate would intervene, and the lovers' paths would cross once again.

Honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame for his six decade career, King Vidor won a honorary 1979 Oscar "for his incomparable achievements as a cinematic creator and innovator." His 1928 masterpiece, The Crowd, earned his first of five Academy Award nominations. Uncredited, he directed all of the "Kansas" scenes in The Wizard of Oz (1939) including the "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" sequence. Hallelujah! (1929), Our Daily Bread (1934), Stella Dallas (1937), The Citadel (1938), Duel In The Sun (1946), The Fountainhead (1949) and War And Peace (1956) are but a few of his many highly regarded works. Beautiful Madge Bellamy is best remembered for co-starring with Bela Lugosi in the classic horror film White Zombie (1932).

Product Description:

Rating 4.0 Madge Bellamy Ideally Suited to Americana Movie Lover: from BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AU -- April, 15, 2014

Even though there is twenty minutes missing,
the hour that is left is beautifully restored and
with the beginning a lovely, leisurely stroll
through small town life, with the undercurrent
of bigotry just below the surface.
John is doing his best to live down the gossip
that paints his mother as the town tramp.
She is exposed early on as not being his
mother but unfortunately the confession to
John that I was waiting for was part of the
missing 20 minutes. He marries Tilly
(beautiful Madge Bellamy) but the gossip is
revealed and Tilly's father drags her back.
The last half is very choppy and a bit
confusing but with enough subtitles so you
know what is going on.
Interesting as an early directorial effort of
King Vidor with the small town setting,
a theme he felt quite at home with.
Definitely worth a look.


Rating 2.5 quite disappointing Movie Lover: from VAIRES SUR MARNE, SEINE-ET-MARNE FR -- August, 22, 2012

I have seen lorna doone with Madge bellamy and I wanted to buy another film with her.
Unfortunately this film is slow and gloomy.I don't think I will watch it again.
