The Parson's Widow
(Carl Dreyer, 1920). Although Dreyer is a master of the tragic film, he did turn out some works in a lighter vein. His third feature, a witty and entertaining story of a young curate who has to marry an old parson's widow in order to obtain a post, was shot on location and combines an exquisite lyrical documentary character with rough, rural humor.
