(1932, Frank Capra) In the midst of revolution, prim missionary Stanwyck finds Chinese warlord Yen (Swedish actor Nils Asther) dangerously attractive. First movie to play Radio City Music Hall. Approx. 88 min. DCP restoration.
“Not only Capra’s masterpiece, but also one of the great love stories to come out of Hollywood in the 30s – subtle, delicate, moody, mystical, and passionate.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
“Asther is actually quite unusual in the picture, and he gives a very delicate performance… I think it’s one of Capra’s finest pictures.”
– Martin Scorsese
