Quotes

Jessie Cassidy: Look, Eddie, here's a world. You and I have this little space all to ourselves. What we feel for each other shuts out all the rest. So what more do we need? That's all people have to fight for is... a little place to themselves. Do you see what I mean?

Money can't buy happiness.
13 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I had seen "mannequin" a long time ago,at a time when I hardly knew Borzage's name .Since I saw most of his talkies and some of his silent works,and when I saw "Mannequin" again,I was a bit disappointed: it is a good film,well played by Joan Crawford and Spencer Tracy but it does not hold a candle to such works as "little man what now?""three comrades" "strange cargo" or the sublime "mortal storm" my favorite Borzage.

In "mannequin" ,we feel the director's touch nevertheless.The first scenes depict a milieu where the heroine has got to fight to get out of it (see also "humoresque " (1920) " the seventh heaven" "street angel" (1927).The search for true love is a permanent feature in Borzage's canon,but Tracy/Crawford ,except in the moving final scenes are not given the same chance to shine as Margaret Sullavan /James Stewart or Janet Gaynor/Charles Farrell .Crawford becoming a mannequin is the main weakness of the plot.But in the end,anyway ,"the love you take is equal to the love you make" .Not a great Borzage ,but worth a watch.
