This 1921 film about the economic and emotional struggles of an impoverished professor's family dramatizes the intense struggles over gender and class ideologies in the early 1920s. Weber's formal innovations transform conventions of melodrama and realism to articulate visually the cultural anxieties centered on the reproduction of a changing middle class.
