“Unquestionably the most down-and-dirty version of Frankie and Johnnie ever filmed,” according to the Museum of Modern Art, “Tay Garnett’s 1930 feature Her Man is set in a Havana bordello populated by a Bukowskian collection of drunks, drug addicts, and hookers. It is also an astonishing formal accomplishment—a film from the early sound period that features extreme long takes and an almost constantly moving camera, techniques 10 years ahead of their time.” Sony Pictures produced this new restoration of Garnett’s long-forgotten pre-Code masterpiece from the film’s original camera negative—which was found in the Columbia Pictures collection at The Library of Congress—with special funds provided by Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation.
