Sunrise

A film by F. W. Murnau
Starring George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor and Margaret Livingston

One of the most beloved silent films, F. W. Murnau’s Sunrise was his first film in the US. George O’Brien is a married farmer tempted away from his wife, Janet Gaynor, by a slatternly woman from the city, who tries to convince him to drown his wife. When the farmer’s wife escapes her murderous husband, he has a change of heart and must find his wife in the big city to which she’s fled and bring her home. Featuring the most adorable drunk pig you’ll ever see on film!
