U.S., 1933
Directed by William K. Howard
Written by Preston Sturges
Starring Spencer Tracy, Colleen Moore, Ralph Morgan
Approx. 76 min. 35mm print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive.


Sturges’ first solo screenplay tells of the rise and fall of ruthless industrialist Spencer Tracy in a complex, multi-flashback “narratage”, with the silent screen’s favorite flapper Colleen Moore (WHY BE GOOD?) as his long-suffering wife. Cited by Pauline Kael as a major influence on CITIZEN KANE.
