T-Meter Title | Year
97% The Big Sleep (1946) For all the untidiness of its plot, The Big Sleep is, however, an enjoyable melodrama, exciting most of the time and comic when it chooses to be. - Washington Star EDIT

No Score Yet Conspirator (1949) Maybe no one could make this dialogue sound like anything but a drama school student saying "How now, brown cow" for the first time. - Washington Star EDIT

98% Rashômon (1951) [Kurosawa] has made it an intriguing picture, occasionally an exciting one. He accents a lot of his dramatic effect, it might be noted, with the throbbing of an increasing taut, Ravel-like bolero. - Washington Star EDIT

78% Cloak and Dagger (1946) Cloak and Dagger has its sharp, melodramatic moments high with excitement and its sequences so taut with suspense that the more susceptible types will be suffering from shattered nerves before the thing is done. - Washington Star EDIT

96% The Stranger (1946) [Welles] has performed a leading role sensibly and directed the whole in a manner which proves he is the master of a number of effective cinematic tricks. - Washington Star EDIT

No Score Yet Black Bart (1948) By not taking itself, or anything else, too seriously the picture has become a modestly amusing tale of cops and robbers in the old west. - Washington Star EDIT

No Score Yet Moontide (1942) The story which has been chosen as M. Gabin's vehicle for his Hollywood debut really is one well-suited to his talents, though some of his past admirers may find it a bit too prettily romantic for a veteran of the brooding French tragedy. - Washington Star EDIT

83% Tarzan's New York Adventure (1942) After all, there is one thing that can be said about Tarzan's New York Adventure and never let it be said that we failed to give praise where it was due. The picture is the story of an adventure Tarzan has in New York. - Washington Star EDIT

92% Man Hunt (1941) You shouldn't be at all surprised to find your knuckles gnawed down a joint or two by the time Mr. Lang arrives at his climax - Washington Star EDIT

No Score Yet Lone Star (1952) The mark of the formula is on Lone Star all right, but it's a good formula for Gable and Director Sherman has made it a slick and fast-moving movie. - Washington Star EDIT
