Critics reviews

Borzage is a master of sentiment so sincere it transcends the maudlin and attains a sublime Hollywood romanticism. Delmar can be more cynical, but her dry wit by no means cancels out her director’s warmth. And they have three stars who prove very pure transmitters of these auteurs’ joint world-view.

With its impulsive proposals, unexpected pregnancies, and phosphorescent glimpses of Coney Island, Borzage’s teeming city vision unfolds like his own version of King Vidor’s The Crowd, lighter but no less heartfelt.
