Film Notes

Male-female relationships stood at the heart of many of Weber’s Rex scripts, and while romance would have been a common trope in other contemporary screen stories, Weber’s early films demonstrate a repeated fascination with heterosexual alliances that transgress racial, class, or moral boundaries; and stories that focus on marital discord, rather than courtship and romance. In Lost Illusions Weber plays a rural mother who is tempted away from her husband and daughter by a dashing stranger from the city.
