USA 1935

 

  A wide-open San Francisco, circa 1890, is the background for one of Howard Hawks's intelligent love triangles: Miriam Hopkins is a mail-order bride whose husband-to-be is killed on the night of her arrival; gambler Edward G. Robinson offers her protection, drifter Joel McCrea offers her solace. A boisterous film with a serious undertone provided by Hawks's preoccupation with the moral compromise necessary for survival.

Comments:

This image is a little hazy for my liking. There is also a fair amount of damage, especially in the first 30 minutes. on the positive - contrast is good.  It really is  shame that MGM couldn't put a little effort in for a Howard Hawks film. They do have some uncharacteristic DUBs offered with similar subtitle options and even a trailer, which seems more than they usually do lately. At least the price is appropriate. Great film - worthy of better treatment!
