~Bor-8A-16:Street Scene from "Street Angel"~
Fox's follow-up to Seventh Heaven, The Street Angel reunited stars Charles Farrell and Janet Gaynor
with director Frank Borzage. The action begins in Naples, as poverty-stricken Maria (Gaynor) steals
medicine for her ailing mother. Now a fugitive from justice, Maria escapes by joining a travelling
carnival, where she meets and falls in love with portrait painter Angelo (Charles Farrell). Impressed
by her ethereal beauty, Angelo asks the girl to pose for his portrait of the Madonna. But when she's
suddenly arrested, the disillusioned Angelo sinks into depravation. Released from prison, Maria sees
her portrait in a church and is inspired to seek out Angelo. Explaining the circumstances of her
arrest, Maria saves Angelo from his sordid surroundings, inspiring him to return to painting -- and,
not surprisingly, to propose marriage. Heavily influenced by the "Germanic" style then in vogue,
Street Angel lacked the simplicity and sincerity of Sunrise but managed to post a profit all the same.
