1934, 117 mins. Restored 35mm print from Sony Pictures Repertory. Directed by Frank Borzage. With George Breakstone, Jimmy Butler. L. P. Hartley?s famous epigraph ?The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there,? could apply to the little-known masterworks of Frank Borzage. No Greater Glory is among the finest of Borzage?s affecting tales. Focusing on immigrant American struggles, Borzage?s perceptive view of working-class life evokes the emotional plenitude of American experience before World War II?feelings and conflicts ignored in movies for baby boomers and Gen-Xers. Borzage?s masterly vision foreshadowed Italian neorealism, the closest equivalent to his now foreign world of politics and spirituality.
