City Girl 1930

This is a true tragedy of the early talkie era. "City Girl" was begun long ago by the brilliant F.W. Murnau as a silent picture, and its first part is a beautiful, powerful story of the love of a city waitress and a son of the wheatlands. (It was called "Our Daily Bread.") Finished as a talkie, it lost all its steam. Charlie Farrell and Mary Duncan give fine performances.
