Anna Christie


This film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Eugene O’Neill play was directed by John Griffith Wray and stars Blanche Sweet, William Russell, George F. Marion and Eugenie Besserer. Russell’s overly animated acting style is a bit detrimental to the overall impact of the film, while Sweet carries much of the load.

This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a good to very-good 16mm reduction print duplicated from a foreign export version of the film, the only known surviving source material. The reduction print is typical in quality, with dark plugged-up shadows, soft image detail, exposure fluctuations, and some hot, featureless highlights.

The film is accompanied by a soundtrack compiled from preexisting monaural orchestral recordings.
