Spain released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Spanish ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Spanish ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Charles Boyer and Margaret Sullavan star in this adaptation of Fannie Hurst's tearjerking novel about a woman who chooses to stand beside a man who cannot marry her. Rae (Margaret Sullavan) is a woman from Ohio who meets a dashing gentleman from out of town, Walter (Charles Boyer). They soon fall for each other, but he's due to leave town shortly. As he's about to leave, he calls her from the ship with a question: there's a minister on board who can marry them. Will she join him? As she dashes to the docks, she meets an old flame, and the delay causes her to miss the boat. Five years later, Rae is in New York City and unexpectedly runs into Walter; assuming that she left him behind intentionally, he married another woman. When he realizes that she still loves him, they begin an affair. Rae is content to live her life as "the other woman" until Walter travels to Europe and neglects to call her when he returns; convinced that their romance is over, Rae goes back to Ohio and agrees to marry Curt (Richard Carlson), who loved her long ago. When Walter discovers that Rae has gone back home, he races to Ohio to reclaim her hand. This was the second film version of BACK STREET, following a 1932 adaptation starring Irene Dunne and John Boles and preceding a 1961 remake with Susan Hayward and John Gavin.

This is one of my very favorite movies, Charles Boyer and Margaret Sullivan give outstanding performance and this version gives you more details and a clearer picture of what can go wrong with your hopes and dreams when someone interferes with your life. It is, in my opinion, much better than the later version with Susan Hayward. I have been looking for this movie for a very long time and I do hope that one day I am able to find it.

Also I am particularly fond of black and white films. They are real and the photography is excellent together with the lighting. They seem to tell the story much better, almost like reading a good book.

This is a wonderful version - I prefer this touching story then the 1961 version with Susan Hayward. If you enjoy a good cry, your heart will give you one.... I wish I could find a copy of this movie, I haven't seen it in years... but it remains a favorite.

Charles Boyer & Margaret Sullivan act up a storm in this wonderful old movie. I prefer the "old" movies because they are not filled with foul language, steamy-in-your-face sex scenes, crazy camera movements, ear deafening noise. these oldies don't rely on super fast action to try to keep you interested... they actually tell a story! and this is a story beautifully told. don't let the horrid cover on Back Street fool you into thinking this is a cheap, crummy movie... far from it! Back Street tells of a love that cannot be denied... of the consequences of missed opportunities... and missed communications. it bespeaks the honor of one man and the strength of the woman who loves him. life throws you curve balls and this movie speaks of the courage required to adjust.

Love having this wonderful old tearjerker. This has always been my favorite version of the story. Margaret Sullavan is just perfect and so is Boyer.

What a delightful film.
They sure knew how to make them n the 40's. Main actors did a superb protrayal of love absentee.
Delightful how quirk of fate alters lives.

Holds up well and offers fine performances from Charles Boyer, Margaret Sullavan and Tim Holt. Concentrates on a turn-of-the-century "affair"
between a prominent banker and a prim young woman from middle-class society. Emotionally on-target and thought provoking. The relationship
between the two central characters endures until their deaths and the final scenes are most touching and still highly effective. Fine performance
by Tim Holt as the indignant son of Boyer who attempts to end the relationship of years and ultimately in the end becomes sympathetic and
understanding...finally realizing the extent of the real love that the two people had for each other. Superb on all levels. A true classic! Far
superior to the later remake with Susan Hayward.

I couldn't remember which of the two versions I watched years ago and wanted to watch again. I had a 50/50 chance of ordering the right one. I ordered the wrong one but the story line is the same and I enjoyed this movie none the less. Now I will order the other one,
