96% The Cat and the Canary (1927) What distinguishes Universal's film version of the C-C play is Paul Leni's intelligent handling of a weird theme, introducing some of his novel settings and ideas with which he became identified. - Variety EDIT

44% The Great Gatsby (1926) As a general entity the screen version of The Great Gatsby is good stuff... All the niceties and un-niceties of fast Long Island life of the type Fitzgerald dotes on criticizing and exposing are capable of elaborate exposition. - Variety EDIT

69% Lonesome (1928) Some of the photography and the basic appeal of the theme saves it for a time, but for the main Lonesome drags and ultimately peters out. - Variety EDIT

No Score Yet Harlem on the Prairie (1938) The title song and "Romance in the Rain" are! the outstanders, in which Herb Jeffries, the singing cowboy hero, distinguishes himself vocally as well as manfully.. - Variety EDIT

89% How Green Was My Valley (1941) How Green Was My Valley is one of the year's better films, a sure-fire critic's picture and, unlike most features that draw kudos from crix, this one will also do business. - Variety EDIT

62% The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Considering the recent screen standards in book musicals with five numbers for 100 to 110 minutes of running time this Metro Santaclausing of numbers becomes virtually a double-feature filmusical. - Variety EDIT
