Serviceable filming of the play with memorable Sweet performance

The only real difference between this and the Garbo talkie versions is in seeing Anna as a child and seeing her downfall in flashback sequences. Otherwise they are pretty well matched as adaptations from the stage play. Sweet does quite well in the lead, able to be both tough and vulnerable in turn. Marion repeats his original stage creation of Chris as he did in the English language Garbo talkie. Besserer does well in the Marthy role but that belongs to Dressler in my opinion. Russell's Mat is uncompromisingly ugly. And so is the plot. Here are these two vile human beings, Anna's father and Mat, blaming her for her downfall at the hands of men, and she buying it. It is a sad statement of what the "rules" used to be in society in the first half of the last century. The situation and the people are so negative and depressing it makes any performance of the work hard to watch and even harder to swallow. See this for Sweet's performance only. It's not great but it does hit the character right on the button.
