60% The Case of Lena Smith (1929) The story as set forth on the screen is a peculiar one; it places the star in a role that gives her tremendous dramatic opportunity, but has an ending that cannot by the widest stretch of imagination be classed as a happy one. - Motion Picture News EDIT

89% The Cheat (1915) There are some excellent lighting effects and the work of Sessue Hayakawa is so far above the acting of Miss Ward and Jack Dean that he really should be the star in the billing for the film. - Variety EDIT
