Charles Farrell, Mary Duncan.
Summary, etc.:
A vivid, painterly study of an impulsive and fragile marriage among the wheatfields of Minnesota. During a brief stay in Chicago, innocent farmer s son Lem falls for and weds Kate, a hard-bitten but lonely waitress. Upon bringing her home at the start of harvest time, the honeymoon soon turns into a claustrophobic struggle as they contend with the bitter scorn of his father and the invasive, leering jealousy of the farm s labouring community. Tenderly romantic and tough-minded in equal measure, City Girl is one of cinemas great pastorals, featuring some of the most delicate performances Murnau ever directed.
