Watch An American Tragedy - Alternative Versions.
The first and best film adaptation of Theodore Dreiser's classic novel
of pointless crime and arbitrary punishment, the 1931 version of AN
American TRAGEDY was directed by Josef Von Sternberg, who had just had
great success with THE BLUE ANGEL (and who made a total of eight films
with star Marlene Dietrich) and who captures the emptiness and
isolation and desperate qualities of the characters well. Phillips
Holmes, perhaps best known today for GENERAL SPANKY (the strange Our
Gang feature film) is a revelation as the heartless, social-climbing
Clyde Griffiths, and the young Sylvia Sidney makes a strong impression
as the working girl killed in the "accident" that leads to the long
trial sequence at the film's end, which is itself a classic of
courtroom melodrama. Clyde is represented in court by Charles Middleton
(who later played Emperor Ming in the FLASH GORDON films) as a cynical,
grandstanding attorney. AN American TRAGEDY still packs a punch today
and has a rawness and power and biting commentary on the class
structure of society entirely lacking in A PLACE IN THE SUN, the 1951
film adaptation of the same novel.
