One of Capra's best-loved films, with endearing characters and viewpoint.
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.
Endearing story of lowlifes
Gets a little goopy, even for Capra.
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.
A cute little pick me up for those suffering through the Depression, Lady for a Day is harmless Capra is not memorable Capra. Feel goodiness without too much depth.
Damon Runyon's short story was the perfect vehicle for Frank Capra's intended assault on the Oscars of 1933, only Oscar didn't bite. No matter, the popular street personalities he created live on for us, thanks to Capra's affection for tough characters with soft hearts, his approximation of the American zeitgeist (which may or may not be true ... but we sure wished that it was). Special mention must be given to Ned Sparks who steals every scene he's in.
A very beautiful movie about a mother and daughter and love and family. Predictable, but sweet.
