This is the last film of William S. Hart. Tumbleweeds is the story of the great land rush of 1889 when the Cherokee Land Strip between Oklahoma and Kansas was opened to homesteaders. It is the story of the homesteaders, full of hope as they prepare to start life anew; the greed of the "sooners", who sneak illegally into the Strip to establish claims ahead of the legitimate homesteaders; and it is the story of the end of the Old West and the cowboy way of life
Portrait of Jennie by William Dieterle ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1948 and 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A struggling artist meets a strangely etheral girl in Central Park and finds himself falling in love. But this is no ordinary relationship - it is a love that transcends time realised in a supreme example of studio-created atmosphere conjured up by Joseph August's camera. For surrealists like Breton and Bunuel, Portrait of Jennie, along with Peter Ibbetson, constitute commercial cinema's refusal of the idea that the world of dreams and the world of reality are quite separate. These films represent the realisation of the possibility of the real being contaminated by the imaginary, a key idea of Breton's. DVD
