Annotation

Contends Frank Borzage’s 1932 adaptation suffered from a misguided, reductive ending aimed at pleasing the audience. Argues that David Selznick’s 1957 adaptation failed to capture the novel’s thematic significance and emotional richness because of a poor script and miscasting of the major roles.
