[8/31 Entry:]
Watched these today:

Little Man, What Now? (1934)

Man's Castle (1933)

Seventh Heaven (1927)

I am growing fond of Frank Borzage's work, in spite of some religious weavings. Little Man especially impressed me. (The very pathos of the title stirs something in me.)

Daybreak Express

Daybreak Express (1953)--D.A. Pennebaker's first amateur documentary short. Consider me surprised.

What am I doing? What have I done?

A sonnet from Shakespeare:

Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gliding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace.
Even so my sun one early morn did shine,
With all triumphant splendor on my brow;
But out alack, he was but one hour mine,
The region cloud hath masked him from me now.
Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when heaven's sun staineth.
