The World and the Flesh Regie John Cromwell


Cromwell, who had plenty of visual sense, and Struss, who was a genius, make a visual tour de force out of this movie, which might actually be a masterpiece if we could see a print that isn’t fuzzy and robbed of all contrast. I mean, it’s clearly drivel in terms of content, but the chiaroscuro, the swooping crane, the lusty glamor shots and ridiculous costumes, all make it romantic tosh of the highest possible order.
