This collection brings together two of the celebrated Hollywood director's most famous titles; 7th Heaven and Street Angel.
Set in Paris on the eve of The Great War, 7th Heaven is an exquisite tale of transformational love in which sewage worker Chico and street waif Diane (Charles Farrell and Janet Gaynor in the first of 12 cinematic pairings) rise above their poverty-stricken lives to reach for the stars - neither war nor death can stand in their way.
Following the success of 7th Heaven, Borzage used Gaynor and Farrell again for Street Angel. This time the setting is Naples, where Angela (Gaynor), the 'street angel' of the title, is forced to confront her past and risks losing her lover Gino (Farrell)
Janet Gaynor won the first Academy Award of Best Actress for her roles in 7th Heaven, Street Angel and Murnau's Sunrise.
