    SUNRISE was his great opportunity. Why the breaks didn't keep coming his way after that is a mystery. His athletic ability and bright personality made him a great cowboy star, but all of those B pictures didn't tap even half of his talent. He had more talent than most of the bigger male stars.

    I am almost 70 and the biggest surprise I have had seeing a movie for the first time was Sunrise on TCM the other night following Moguls part 3. I cannot believe what a powerful film it is. When I heard Robert Osborne say it was directed by F.W. Murnau I knew I had to watch. It was an amazing film. The acting, the story telling, the direction, the cinemaphotography. George O'Brien and Janet Gaynor were superb. Thank you again TCM. I just cannot get the movie out of my mind. It's a shame Mr. Murnau died so soon after. He was surely underappreciated for his true genius. But as Robert Osborne said the Academy gave it an Oscar for "artistry" in these days of mediocre films that to me is better than best picture. To me Sunrise and Nosferatu are two of the best films ever made and ironically both silent.

    This was a captivating movie, and a superb performance by George O'Brien. You could tell his every thought and emotion just by his facial expressions, and the way he moved; without a single audible word being uttered. I find it ironic that Janet Gaynor, whose performance was good but not stellar, received the Oscar for best actress, but it appers the George O'Brien was completely overlooked when, in my opinion, he gave the most outstanding performance, and was the central focus of the entire movie. Thankfully "Sunrise" did receive an Oscar for Best Cinemtography; this movie was exquisitely shot.
