City Girl ★★½ Our Daily Bread 1930
Friedrich Murnau, who directed the silent vampire classic “Nosferatu,” was removed from the director's chair before “City Girl” was completed and it shows. But so do the marks of his inimitable camera direction. The story concerns a Minnesota grain grower who visits the Windy City and returns with a waitress as his wife. Frustratingly inconsistent, leading you to wonder what could have been had Murnau remained behind the camera (he died the following year). Silent. 90m/B VHS . Charles Farrell, Mary Duncan; D: F.W. Murnau.
