Man's Castle

Frank Borzage, 1933

Presented in association with Cinevent, Columbus's annual celebration of classic cinema, tonight's program of 1930s' films pairs a comedy starring Jean Arthur with a touching romantic tale directed by Frank Borzage.

Second feature start time: 8:25 PM. An endearing mix of comedy and drama, Party Wire stars the irresistible Jean Arthur as a woman who becomes the subject of vicious gossip when the local operator listens in on one of her phone calls. (72 mins., 35mm)

In the pre-Code, Depression-era drama Man's Castle, Loretta Young plays a desperate young woman who moves into the Hooverville shanty of tough-guy Spencer Tracy, hoping for romance despite his resistance. Director Borzage gracefully (and characteristically) carves out a moving romance despite the characters' bleak environment. (66 mins., 35mm)
