7th Heaven

  • The Old School House Richmond Road Leyburn, England, DL8 5DL United Kingdom (map)

Janet Gaynor won the Best Actress award at the very first Academy Awards for her role in this gorgeously romantic drama of star-crossed Parisian lovers. With beautiful sets, stunning camerawork and a live harp score, 7th Heaven is silent-era Hollywood at its most powerful.

7th Heaven tracks the transformational love of Farrell and Gaynor from the sewers to the stars, across time and space, and beyond death itself, affirming triumphantly that melodrama can mean much more than just an excuse for a good weep.
