Her Man. 1930. USA. Directed by Tay Garnett. 83 min.
Screenplay by Thomas Buckingham, Howard Higgin, Garnett. With Helen Twelvetrees, Ricardo Cortez, Philipps Holmes. Likely inspired by Jimmie Rodger’s 1929 hit recording of the titular folk song, Garnett adds details to the classic plot by imagining Frankie (Twelvetrees) as a Havana “showgirl,” Johnnie (Cortez) as her pimp, and, adding a new character, an American sailor (Holmes) who holds out the possibility of redemption.
