Twelve Best Borzage Movies

by Dale Wittig

I’ve come to my appreciation of Borzage’s work very late in life and regret not having encountered it at an earlier time. I have yet to see Moonrise and several other of his more esteemed films, such as Bad Girl and Little Man, What Now? I have, however, seen the Mortal Storm and probably should have found a place for it on this list (if for nothing else) on the strength of Margaret Sullavan’s fine central performance. I may soon revise the list accordingly after viewing it again and those others yet to be seen.
