The Man Who Came Back (1931) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Janet Gaynor, Charles Farrell, Kenneth MacKenna, William Holden

Directed by Raoul Walsh



Print: black/white

Runtime: 74 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



The popular screen romantic team of Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell

shocked and surprised their fans in the ultra-melodramatic The Man Who

Came Back. Based on a 1916 stage success, the film atypically casts

Gaynor as Angie, a San Francisco nightclub chanteuse who degenerates

into drug addiction. In a parallel development, drunken playboy Steve

Randolph (Farrell, in another bit of offbeat casting) destroys his

reputation by writing bad checks. Only when Angie and Steve have both

reached the dregs in a Shanghai opium den do they find each other and

fall in love. It's a hard, uphill climb, but hero and heroine manage to clean

themselves up in time for a happy ending. The scenes in which Janet

Gaynor is established as a "doper" are quite raw for their time, especially

when one considers the actress's normally virginal screen image.
