This is the one that should have netted Marie Dressler the best actress Oscar, not the year prior's MIN AND BILL. EMMA is a far more complex character and she is able to show a full range of emotion in this teary tale of a devoted housekeeper who marries her employer, only to have three of his spoiled brat children turn against her when he dies. She should have drowned this bunch. She is quite superb throughout. Odd though in that if she raised them, how did they turn out to be such b*****ds???? Dressler earned a most deserved Best Actress nom. The excellent cinematography should also have been recognized by the Academy. This one is a must-see.
