Three by Frank Borzage
Golden-age Hollywood’s great romanticist, Frank Borzage directed over one hundred films in a career that stretched from 1913 to 1961. Renowned for his sensitive touch, humanist sincerity, and unparalleled ability to cast a spell of dreamy eroticism, his films are ecstatic paeans to exalted love frequently informed by his pacifist worldview. Made at the height of Borzage’s powers, these early jewels—a swooning Depression-era love story starring Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young, a deliriously romantic Hemingway adaptation, and a unique and unforgettable antiwar allegory—are among the master director’s finest works.
