Suitably made for Depression-era audiences, Frank Capra's version of Damon Ranyon's famed story is an endearing fable with a strong, Oscar-nominated turn from the vet actress May Robson as Apple Annie.

Capra spreads his usual feel-good schmaltz over the otherwise springy material.

Despite the film's lack of momentum toward the end, it's still perfectly watchable, and it's a good window on early Capra.

A film where even scenes of abject poverty shimmer with an almost luminous quality. Capra's camera is fluid and precise in its moves.
