Pál Fejös United States, 1928

Log Lady's rating of the film Lonesome

Granted, this is a sweet and bubbly romance (the type I don't usually like), but I completely fell in love with the sincerity and the frantic and exhausting energy. Tryon is adorable and charming, and the way the screen is overwhelmed by the huge frolicking crowds and the overlapping of images is wonderful (the roller coaster ride!). During a little amount of time, Fejös makes the viewer care about the characters.
