FRANK BORZAGE VOLUME 1
7th HEAVEN + STREET ANGEL
Frank Borzage, the sensitive actor-turned-director famed for his mystical romanticism, created some of Hollywood's most acclaimed and sensual films. This release brings together two lavishly produced landmarks of the silent period by this visionary poet of desire.
7th Heaven is a lyrical tale of transformational love in which Paris sewage worker Chico and street waif Diane (Charles Farrell and Janet Gaynor) rise above their poverty-stricken lives to reach for the stars. In Street Angel Gaynor plays Angela, a would-be prostitute who risks losing her lover Gino (Farrell) as she is forced to confront her past. Janet Gaynor won her first Academy Award for Best Actress for her roles in 7th Heaven, Street Angel (and Murnau's Sunrise) whilst Frank Borzage was awarded the Best Director of a Dramatic Picture.
