Full title: ''Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans''. A 1927 film directed by [[Creator/FriedrichWilhelmMurnau F. W. Murnau]]. It was his first American film and won two Oscars at the first AcademyAward ceremony: Best Cinematography and Best Artistic Quality of Production (an alternate Best Picture award that existed only that year). It is perhaps best known for its massive critical acclaim (even over 80 years later) and for either inventing or perfecting many of the camera, special effects and storytelling techniques we take for granted now.

Added DiffLines:

* ChromaKey: What looks at first like an egregiously bad green-screen effect of the Man and Wife walking across a city street, is revealed to be deliberate when the effect changes to the Man and Wife walking through a beautiful field of flowers, suggesting how they're tuning out the world as they renew their love for each other.


Added DiffLines:

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: The angelic, loving Wife has blonde hair--this is definitely an artistic choice, as Gaynor was a natural brunette.


Added DiffLines:

* ImportantHaircut: The Man gets a shave, getting rid of his scruffy beard, symbolic of being renewed and cleaning himself.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Gaynor didn't even get to O'Brien's collarbone level. This makes the scene where he looms over her in the boat particularly effective.



* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: The Woman from The City is the Dark Feminine (hedonist, cheater), while The Wife is the Light Feminine (good all the way through).

* AcademyAward: See above. It should be noted that at the time acting awards were given for one's body of work within the year, so Gaynor's Oscar was not just for this film, but also for ''Street Angel'' and ''Seventh Heaven''.
