EAST LYNNE ( 1931 )

FERNANDO’s CORNER ~ posted August 21st, 2017

This movie is a fine costume drama (with the last reel missing, sadly) starring the luminous Ann Harding, who’s such a gifted actress that makes the most of her part.

Conrad Nagel and Clive Brook co-star and are quite stiff, especially the former, although their diction is impeccable. Cecilia Loftus does a fine job as Nagel’s character’s bitter sister. Wally Albright is very sweet as Ann’s child and his scenes with her are very touching and believable.

Fine art direction and good period atmosphere.
