A story of two humans.
SUNRISE is easily the greatest film made in the silent era. Murnau’s story (or filmed poem, according to the credits) is about a troubled farmer (George O’Brien) and his secret girlfriend (Margaret Livingston) plotting to murder his wife (Janet Gaynor, possibly the sweetest, most likable adult character in film history!) The storyline, the dark, moody photography, the creepy sets (especially that swamp!) makes you think this will be a thriller with an unhappy ending, much like AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. About half-way through the film, Murnau pulls such a daring 180 degree turn with his film, you’ll shake your head, and will love it. I doubt film-makers today would try for such a daring move!
It is shame that Murnau died middle aged in 1931. Had he of lived another 30 years, and made films up until the age of Cinemascope, looser censorship, 60’s technology, what great films we would have.
Glad to know this flick is SO well loved!
While cleaning out my desk this evening and organizing my film note papers, I came across my file on this movie and realized I had posted a commentary on it back in 2001. Well after logging on, I discovered that there are now 11 pages of evaluation and all speak quite highly of “Sunrise.” Of course, I have always held that concept and have ‘pushed’ this movie upon everyone and anyone whenever cinema topics arise. My personal ‘connection’ with the film is that while a teenager (16yrs old) I went to see it at MOMA in NYC. Unfortunately, they accidentally failed to bring the second half from their Archives in Fort Lee. NJ. Suddenly, the screen went blank, the lights went on, and there were apologies. The Museum offered the audience tickets for a future showing of it. Afterall, it cost this high schooler a whopping $2.00 to enter the Museum back in Spring of 1968. So, I returned and finally saw it in full that Fall. Then, years later, getting tired of the poorly copied tape I had purchased; I called and called FOX about when it was being prepared for DVD. Eventually, *they* must have gotten tired of listening to me and actually ‘gave’ me the FIRST disc! Of course, it isn’t numbered, but that’s what they told me, I guess in order to keep me quiet! 😀 Meanwhile, my connection with Silents has continued, have lectured at MOMA (1993 Bobby Harron Centennial), done various film festival showings/lectures, and written articles on the Silent Era.
However, anyone who knows me also knows what my favorite film is and I am very happy to read that others find “Sunrise” fine since the AFI does so as well in its ratings. Enough of my story-telling, since you are logged on because you want to either express your opinion or learn evaluations of the films posted by others and you definitely now know that my evaluation is A++, 100%, 10, and any other Highest Rating possible!
