The first foray into "Capracorn" and Frank Capra's first direct engagement with the Great Depression: bank president Walter Huston insists on lending on "character" collateral, despite a straying wife, an embezzling cashier and a spectacular bank run, with machine-gun dialogue and precision editing. "One of the most beautifully assembled, lighted and photographed pictures of the 1930s... the main décor of the vast bank interior composes an incredible Temple of Babylon." – Elliott Stein, Village Voice. DIR/PROD Frank Capra; SCR Robert Riskin; PROD Harry Cohn. U.S., 1932, b&w, 75 min. NOT RATED
