  1. Cimino!'s rating of the film Frisco Jenny

    Unbelievable: yet another pre-code gem by Wellman. Heroes For Sale, Other Men's Women, Wild Boys On The Road, Safe In Hell, Frisco Jenny: he simply couldn't stop.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Frisco Jenny

    Superbe mélodrame, efficace et concis, sur les dramatiques effets de l'amour d'une mère, mené avec brio et conviction par un William Wellman au meilleur de sa forme... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Frisco Jenny

    "I also think that film is kind of a generational tale." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/01/episode-44-william-wellman-1929-1933.html

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Frisco Jenny

    Too much melodrama for me here. Wellman isn't Sirk.

  5. bartkl's rating of the film Frisco Jenny

    After losing everything, Jenny lives to provide for her son. She is kind of a tragic hero, and I find it intriguing to see a woman have this role, considering this is a 30s movie! However, she's a mother first and a survivor second. Being able only to love remotely, she is certainly proficient in showing that love. Especially the ending shows a beautiful commitment only motherly love could offer. A pleasant watch!
