Josef von Sternberg's first feature. There are Spanish subtitles,
but, because they appear only on the title cards, the do not
interfere with the visual integrity of this magnificent exercise in
mise-en-scene, the font from which all of Sternberg's subsequent
work flows. "Dedicated to the derelicts of the earth," the film is lose
in tone and setting to "Docks of New York," but with a more
pronounced element of social criticism, it seems to exist somewhere
between expressionism and neo-realism.
“It's hard now to appreciate the bomb-shell that Sternberg's first
feature must have been in Hollywood at the time: its slow pace, its
lyrical pessimism, and its strong emphasis on the psychological over the
physical set it far apart from anything that the American cinema had
produced” (Tony Rayns, Time Out Film Guide).
Shot for less than five thousand dollars in the span of three weeks,
the groundbreaking Salvation Hunters announced the emergence of
a major new talent, even if audiences of the day didn't quite know what to
make of its grimy settings, glum tone, and overt symbolizing. The film
follows “The Boy” and “The Girl” as they escape the deplorable living
conditions of their riverfront home to the city, only to encounter “The
Brute,” who is hell-bent on having the girl to himself. “A starkly poetic tale
of poverty and depression which, after being hissed at its premiere, was
hailed as a masterpiece by Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie
Chaplin” (Tag Gallagher, senses of cinema).
