Little Man, What Now? 1934. USA. Directed by Frank Borzage. 98 min.
Another visitor from Fox, Frank Borazage (7th Heaven), was recruited to direct Hans Fallada’s best-selling novel about the struggles of a young couple (Margaret Sullavan and Douglass Montgomery) in Weimar Germany. Borzage and Sullavan became an enduring team when both moved to MGM, where the gloom and grittiness of *Little Man*—arguably the first anti-Nazi Hollywood film—would have been unthinkable.
