    I really really loved this one. What's memorable for me is how natural the acting feels and how palpable the chemistry is between the leads. It made the story so intriguing and believable despite..as others have mentioned, a slightly botched ending by today's standards...but it was 1929 and as whole, it stands its own as a great film. 3 years 11 months ago
