The way this film is reconstructed (scenes missing, replaced by production stills and intertitles) makes for a unique viewing experience that seems to fit this narrative perfectly. It adds layers of implausibility, ellipsis, and rhythm that could be played with probably quite fruitfully.
Incomplete films are always a topic for an interesting aesthetic debate: Can we consider what chance has left as a new work with its own value or is it inseparable from the original intention? Still, what's left is an intense melodrama that deals with sex in both a metaphorical way and a raw and direct one.
Cinematography by Ernest Palmer. "Desire" list: Charles Farrell in the hands of Frank Borzage became a mark of virile sensitivity, immortalized by each and every moment that at the present time each one of his films is seen, with the beauty of time and its extent, of that time in him, of him out-of-time.
