(1932) Bank president Walter Huston insists on lending on “character” collateral, despite an almost-cheating wife, embezzling cashier, and spectacular bank run. Told with machine-gun dialogue and pin-point editing, this is “one of the most beautifully assembled, lighted and photographed pictures of the 30s… the main décor of a vast bank interior composes an incredible Deco Temple of Babylon” (Elliot Stein).  Approx. 81 min. 35mm.
