Margaret Sullavan stars in the deeply moving romantic drama Little Man, What Now? directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner* Frank Borzage. Fired for marrying his sweetheart Emma (Sullavan), instead of his boss’s daughter, Hans (Douglass Montgomery), an impoverished German clerk, moves his pregnant wife to Berlin where he gets a job as a salesman. Dismissed for insulting a customer, Hans has only Emma’s love to sustain him as he seeks opportunity in a country where work is scarce and the Nazis are rising to power. Blending themes of politics and social crisis with love and compassion, this rarely seen classic showcases one of cinema’s most impactful auteur’s, Frank Borzage, at his best.
* Directing: 7th Heaven (1927/28), Bad Girl (1931/32)
