Read your blog and the comments that followed. First of all, welcome to the club. I hope you're keeping The Borzage Marathon
bookmarked as a handy guide, and I certainly hope you're reading the writeups Me
have posted as well. I'll be paying special attention to Little Man What Now and Three Comrades, since I haven't watched them and he's a director who I'd still like to see more of.
As for the ending, it's had to say because you're starting with the film I watched last. By then I was ready for Borzage's use of the "magical dress" and that touch of magical realism that make his finales so special. Is it logical? Not at all. But it's got me all choked up, and I did think the moment was properly built up with the other scenes of Tim in his cabin. [spoiler]I wanted to believe in miracles[/spoiler] and the director made me very happy.
