A good silent which, even though it is somewhat slow, plays well today. Many romance hallmarks in this one - and they probably were fresh back in 1927, too. Janet Gaynor was the Naomi Watts of the twenties.

A satisfying mix of melodrama, action and comedy. A sewer worker rescues a young lady from her villainous sister, and naturally a romance blooms. I didn't care for the religious sentiments, or the somewhat anti-feminist values, but both these elements are fairly slight in view of the larger picture. Chico and Diane make a charming couple and watching their relationship develop and overcome hurdles is a pleasure. Borzage demonstrates some very impressive camera technique.

Shamelessly melodramatic and banal story, but Its romance hallmarks, which clearly has been copied several times since, plays surprisingly well today. Excellent cinematography as well as the acting from Janet Gaynor.

Like most silent dramas it's a bit too slowly paced but it's got some nice visuals and a pretty compelling story. Gaynor deserved her Oscar for a wonderful performance as her character goes through a range of predicaments. I have to say I was a little annoyed by the ending which is forced and heavy-handed bot overall this is really good silent.
