Fifteen Best Borzage Films

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. The list I compiled of what I’ve seen so far has undergone a couple of changes of late. I finally got round to seeing Bad Girl and Moonrise, and was suitably impressed, but still have yet to see several other of his more esteemed films, such as Lazybones and Little Man, What Now? I’ve given the Mortal Storm more thought; it has grown in my estimation and the list has been accordingly revised by expanding it, rather than through substitution or addition and subtraction.
