When World Collide
13 September 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An excellent melodrama as Tsuru Aoki marries American sailor Frank Borzage -- a curly-haired fellow before he turned director -- despite a family curse that causes volcanoes to 'empty their bowels' when daughters marry -- apparently no such penalty befalls the men. Sessue Hayakawa, in heavy makeup, is unrecognizable as, indeed, are most of the actors, but director Reginald Barker, about to embark on a course of William S. Hart movies, produces a marvelous set-piece of a lynch mob on the trail of the lovers and the father, who has converted to Christianity, followed, of course, by a volcanic eruption. It all holds your interest expertly and you should not miss a chance to see this one.
