Theodore Dreiser, upon whose 1911 novel the movie is based, was so pleased with the adaptation after seeing a preview that he sent a telegram to Paramount boss B.P. Schulberg, saying, "Jennie moving improvisation upon my theme, excellently cast, beautifully interpreted." See more »
This is probably one of the better movies you'll never see. It's a poignant "old timey" movie about a poor girl who falls in love with a Senator. She finds herself pregnant but in love with him and about to marry, but fate intervenes in tragedy. This is one that used to be shown on AMC, but probably will never be aired again, which is a shame. Ms. Sydney is hauntingly beautiful and Mr. Arnold as her lover is very good. Maybe if your lucky, TCM or another station will air this gem and you'll see what I mean.
