Storyline

Because his finances are low and he is seeking background for a new book, author Tony Barratt and his wife Dora return to his country home in Conneecticut. While he is finding a theme for his book on the lives and customs of the local, immigrant tobacco farmers, his wife returns to New York and, alas, his Japanese servant deserts him. He meets a neighboring farm girl, Manya Novak, and hires her to cook his meals and clean his house. They soon fall in love. But, following the customs of the old country, her father has entered a 'marriage bargain' for her to wed a man, Fredrik Sobieski, not of her choosing.

Trivia

King Vidor told newspaper columnist Dan Thomas that he used temperature control in the soundstage, cranking the heat in the studio up to 80 degrees for the love scenes between Gary Cooper and Anna Sten. For the scenes in which Cooper and Sten argue, he had the studio cooled to 50 degrees. See more »

True Romance
6 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Here is Gary Cooper in one of his more authentically romantic screen roles.

By romantic I do not mean the stale bourgeois antics of the matinee idol, but a figure that is, at once, poetic and transgressive. Cooper plays a married man who, during a stay in the country, falls in love with a farm girl. She belongs to a family of recent immigrants. They do not see her involvement with a married man not of their ethnic world at all positively. The ending is tragic, but the power of their transfiguring involvement is very convincingly portrayed, and the photography has real class. Cooper acts with an open intensity not often available to the clichéd strong-inarticulate American male. If you are bored by his "High Noon" persona, see this film.
