80% Treasure Island (1920) In attempting to paint the lily, [Tourneur] has cheapened it by more than one tawdry stroke. Nevertheless he has made a very entertaining story of a hunt for buried treasure. - Photoplay EDIT

100% An Arabian Knight (1920) This an improvement over previous pictures starring Sessue Hayakawa because it gives the Japanese actor a real chance at character drawing. - Photoplay EDIT

99% The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) (1920) It is a story told, and seen, by a disordered mind, with all the scenery jumbled in fantastic shapes and the features of the players weirdly angular and wildly staring. - Photoplay EDIT

100% The Breath of the Gods (1920) You will go away from this picture with a lot of lumps in your throat, and the feeling that you have seen something very worth while... It will prove that Tsuru Aoki, here seen in her first starring vehicle, is of star material. - Photoplay EDIT

43% Sacred and Profane Love (1921) Elsie Ferguson comes back to the screen rested and a little more eager than she was when she left it, but she comes back in a picture that gives her little opportunity to realize upon either her recovered energy or her talent as an actress. - Photoplay EDIT

100% The Kid (1921) I'll wager one unclipped Liberty Bond against a dozen small, soggy doughnuts that it will give more people more enjoyment than any other picture they have ever seen in a motion picture theater. - Photoplay EDIT
