Phillips Holmes in Her Man (1930)

Her Man is a 1930 American pre-Code drama film produced and distributed by Pathé Exchange, directed by Tay Garnett[1] and starring Phillips Holmes, Helen Twelvetrees and Marjorie Rambeau. The film is inspired by the ballad Frankie and Johnny.[2][3] The picture's supporting cast features James Gleason, Ricardo Cortez, Thelma Todd and Franklin Pangborn.

At least one copy is preserved at the Library of Congress.[4] The original camera negative, rediscovered in the 2010s, has been scanned and restored at 4K resolution by Sony Pictures Entertainment, in partnership with the Film Foundation and RT features.[5]


A Havana prostitute (Twelvetrees) with a sadistic "protector" (Cortez) falls for a young sailor (Holmes).



Writing in The New York Times on the release of a restored version of the film, the critic J. Hoberman says that the film was well received when it was released and that it was a favorite of Henri Langlois of the Cinémathèque Française. Hoberman calls out the use of tracking shots in the film,[3] as also does Farran Smith Nehme in Film Comment.[6] The MOMA film curator David Kehr called the "constantly moving camera" 10 years ahead of its time.[7] Nehme describes the film as a "brawling, sleazy pre-Code" and that Garnet successfully "weaves in tenderness" into what is also a romantic film.[6]
