    For the very first Academy Awards there wasn’t much variety in the nominees, but some competent performances. Other great roles that year would be Clara Bow in “It” or Marion Davies in “Show people”.

    Who’s yours and why?

    I’m going wiht Gloria Swanson…just a tad over Gaynor’s work in SUNRISE.  Swanson had this allure too great to ignore.

    I own Sadie Thompson but have never got round to watching it so not really fair to vote.

    Having said that Gaynor is sublime in both Sunrise and Seventh Heaven.

    EDIT: Excitingly I’ve just gone to look at my chronological collection of Oscar winning DVD’s and found that my copy of ‘Seventh Heaven’ is actually a double DVD and has ‘Street Angel’ on it as well!!! This is very exciting and it can now be added to the ever increasing list of films I’ve been meaning to watch for years, but haven’t got round to because I spend FAR too much time on message boards talking about them.

    The closeup on Gaynor’s face when her husband asks her to join him for a boat ride in “Sunrise” was worthy of an Oscar all by itself.

    The fact that she has an equally scintillating and deeply moving characterization in “Seventh Heaven” and a very poignant performance that lifts “Street Angel” into a higher echelon in the same year further underscores how right the Academy was to bestow its first Actress honor on her.

    I have all five of these performances, but sadly have yet to watch any of them.
