I feel bad for not really adding much to the discussion, but I felt compelled to mention that this movie is an awful, dated, cliched, racist piece of shit.

Agreed on the cringe-worthy stereotypes....this one gives it to African Americans, Native Americans, women, stutterers, even the "Well, I never!" lady. Just dreadful.

Tough to watch at times, kinda enjoyed the performance by the two leading actors/actresses. Otherwise really dated. The titular character is virtually non existent in this film too

I should have read the comments here before sitting through this movie. I kept thinking, "This is so BAD! What am I missing?" Now I know I wasn't missing anything; it really was that bad!

So many stereotypes make me cringe in embarrassment.

How did this win the Oscar and City Lights not even get nominated??

Yes, terrible. Cavalcade might be worse, though.

This is by far the worst Oscar winner ever. Oh dare. What in the world where they thinking? 1931 was one of the greatest years that decade but they pick Cimarron? What gives?

I was looking through my comments and have no recollection of watching this at all. Apparently I liked it? Weird.

Thanks for warning me that I was about to see a very bad movie. Now, I was expecting much worse than I saw :)

City Lights (1931) is the highest rated comedy on IMDb (#46 on the top 250) , but wasn't even nominated for best picture. Meanwhile Cimarron (1931) has the lowest rating of any Best Picture winner by an embarrassingly comfortable margin:

1. Cimarron (1931) 6.1
2. Cavalcade (1933) 6.4
3. The Broadway Melody (1929) 6.5
4. Around the World In 80 Days (1956) 6.8
5. The Greatest Show On Earth (1952) 6.7
6. Gigi (1958) 6.9
7. The Great Ziegfeld (1936) 6.9
8. Tom Jones (1963) 7.0
9. Out of Africa (1985) 7.0
10.
-- An American In Paris (1951) 7.2
-- Chicago (2002) 7.2
-- Chariots of Fire (1981) 7.2

Neither adaptation of Ferber's novel by the same name have been any good. Unfortunately this film has not aged well and a lot of the acting is painful to watch...
