Little Man, What Now? (Frank Borzage, 1934)


Frank Borzage is saddled with a portentous, awkward mediocrity of a screenplay - about the state of [un]employment in Weimar Germany, no less - and he renders it into something tender and radiant. It's still preachy, to be sure, but rather than delusions of grandeur, there is conviction behind the humanity.
