      Dan Sallitt MUBI Much of the distinctive feeling of the film can be attributed to Harry Oliver's amazing set design, and to the way Borzage and cinematographer Ernest Palmer photograph the ravine that is the setting for most of the film's exteriors. Oct 12, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A silent film from 1929 that to this day remains incomplete the first, last & sections of the middle feels are lost. But with amazing skill and finesse the archivists at UCLA (with the use of the original script & on set photos) where able to create an effective 54 minute version. It's a wonderful tense drama about naive boatman Allen John being seduced by Local Gang Man's girl played by Mary Duncan. There are many steamy & suggestive scenes for 1929 but sadly the climax is missing footage which is a real shame. A well made romance directed by the silent master Frank Borzage.
