Film (1934)

Musique: Richard Rodgers
Paroles: Lorenz M. Hart
Production à la création:

A streetwalker rises to stage stardom but triggers a scandal when two brothers fall for her.

Initially interesting adaptation of Emile Zola story of luxury-loving woman in tragic love affair runs out of steam towards the middle. Producer Samuel Goldwyn's first attempt to make a new Garbo out of exotic but wooden Sten.
Nana opened wide with a massive advertising push and was a huge flop, both commercially and critically. Most reviews honed in on Sten's weak performance. Goldwyn's "Million Dollar Discovery" was branded "Goldwyn's Folly," but the producer was undeterred, determined to transform Sten into a star, and he featured her in two subsequent productions: We Live Again (1934) opposite Fredric March and The Wedding Night (1935) with Gary Cooper. They proved to be expensive lessons and Goldwyn finally gave up on Sten. Though she remained in America, her career was quickly forgotten. Goldwyn's career, meanwhile, only became more successful and more prestigious.
