Two childhood sweethearts separate, reunite in tragedy, and finally consummate their love in the afterlife. The last person in the world you’d expect to film this gauzy romance is Henry Hathaway, that solid old master of middling westerns and pseudorealism (Call Northside 777). But something apparently clicked: this 1935 drama is a stunner, a complete anomaly in Hathaway’s career. With Gary Cooper, Ann Harding, Ida Lupino, John Halliday, and cinematography by Charles Lang (which helps a lot).
