85% The Miracle (1912) As a spectacle, admirably singed and executed; as a demonstration of the artistic possibilities of moving pictures accompanied by music of the finest quality; and as a new form of theatrical entertainment, The Miracle was an unqualified success. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

90% Daughter of the Gods (1916) The photoplay is so cluttered up, so much is packed into the two hour and a half's entertainment that no single impression of the picture remains. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

43% The Fall of a Nation (1916) The picture, notwithstanding all the splendor and dramatic fire of its war spectacles, becomes merely irritating when the propaganda is allowed to degenerate into vicious personal attacks. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

100% The Battle Cry of Peace (1915) The Battle Cry of Peace is a good photoplay, and when, at the end, the lesson of our unpreraredness is clinched, the teaching has been through characters and incidents and climaxes. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

100% Hearts of the World (1918) Griffith, his severest critics will probably admit, never has done better work than in this new film. Its photography is artistically bountiful to a remarkable degree; its action is swift and compelling, and it is all vividly realistic. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

100% Hypocrites (1915) The work of Del Clawson and George W. Hill, in this picture, resulted in the achievement of some fine photographic effects. One scene chows twelve exposures, the film passing through the camera twenty-four times. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

100% M (1931) Technically, It is presented with the objective conviction of a news reel. It is a horrible and as convincing as if a cameraman had been witness to the Leopold and Loeb murder, for example. The story moves with breath-taking, ominous suspense. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

No Score Yet The Passion Play of Oberammergau (1898) This is altogether the most novel and striking exhibition which the [Eden Musee theater] has ever given and is the precursor of a flood of Passion Play pictures. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT

91% Cleopatra (1917) The word stupendous has been overworked by the motion picture producers that one hesitates about using it, but this is the only word that suits William Fox's production of Cleopatra. - Brooklyn Daily Eagle EDIT
