Lilies of the Field is a wonderful emotional drama!
26 January 2008 | by (Chinatown, California) – See all my reviews

Based on the stage play by William Hurlburt, Lilies of the Field, staring Corinne Griffith is a wildly passionate backstage melodrama with terrific performances. Griffith plays a chorus girl has been robbed of her child by framed divorce court evidence.

Here Griffith is young and vulnerable, yet with an inner strength that enables her to survive intact. Griffith was already a star before Lilies of the Field and she has top billing, but this is the film that made her into an even bigger star. And it is easy to see why.

The film is greatly distinguished by a bizarre, yet lavishing Art Deco movie sets, huge staircases, mad parties, hot musical numbers in which Griffith is dressed (just barely) as an Art Deco automobile hood ornament.

Hip flasks of hooch, jazz, speakeasies, bobbed hair, 'the lost generation.' It's no doubt the Twenties are endlessly fascinating. It was the first truly modern decade and, for better or worse, it created the model for society that the entire world follows today. Lilies of the Field, like Our Dancing Daughters (1928) is a great time capsule of the Twenties. Don't expect to see the gentle Gibson girl of the earlier generation, because this film is all about bobbed hair and a short skirt, with turned-down hose and powdered knees! Griffith also starred in the talkie version of this picture in 1930.
