90% Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) While not unduly terrifying, which may be set down as a point in its favor, this talker version of the famous dual personality character is sufficiently dramatic and gripping to satisfy any demand for shocker entertainment. - The Film Daily EDIT

89% That Royle Girl (1925) This time D. W. has taken Edwin Balmer's Cosmopolitan Magazine serial and with a mass of material and situations he has brought forth a melodrama, unique in its sensations and development if not in situations and denouement. - The Film Daily EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2020
86% Beggar on Horseback (1925) There is a splendid production, some unusual sets, and with James Cruze handling the direction you are sure of a capable presentation of the subject, but it is the subject matter which fails and it will fail deplorably [at the box office]. - The Film Daily EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2020
100% Red Hair (1928) It's jazzy -- dizzy -- sexy -- laughable. - The Film Daily EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2020
40% White Heat (1934) It has been written and directed by those who quite obviously are familiar with the unusual background of the drama. Hence it carries a strong atmosphere of realism and sincerity. - The Film Daily EDIT

100% Flaming Youth (1923) Those in search of a sensation may find the film version tame in comparison [to the book]. Nevertheless all of the "kick" hasn't been eliminated, and... there is still enough pep to satisfy lovers of jazz entertainment. - The Film Daily EDIT

67% Human Wreckage (1923) [The filmmakers have] provided very vivid picture, secured splendid sympathy and [get the] message over rather forcibly. - The Film Daily EDIT

82% Convention City (1933) With a name cast as long as your arm, including plenty of comedy talent, plus a continuity and direction that propel the action at a springy gait, there is something doing all the time, and mixed in with the farce are a couple of romances. - The Film Daily EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2020
67% Aloma of the South Seas (1926) Maurice Tourneur has supplied a host of colorful atmosphere in the picturesque backgrounds. Harry Fischbeck's photography is superb and some of the sepia tinted shots are mighty beautiful. - The Film Daily EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2020
88% The Way of All Flesh (1927) The picture is gripping from beginning to end and Jannings a marvel of pantomime at every stage. - The Film Daily EDIT
