Crew
Directed by Boris Barnet


A completely hilarious and charming romantic comedy featuring the extraordinary talents of director Boris Barnet and actress Anna Sten -- later a star for Goldwyn in the thirties. Anna works in a hat shop -- sharing her small apartment with a penniless student. She is given a supposedly worthless lottery ticket instead of her wages by her unscrupulous employer. However, the ticket wins her a fortune and a madcap chase ensues to possess the ticket -- and Anna's love.

The Girl With the Hat Box moves with the speed and grace of the best American silent comedies. Boris Barnet, a Russian director of English ancestry, was the great comedic genius of Soviet cinema with such films as The House on Trubnaya Square and When Moscow Laughs.
