T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet A Doll's House (1922) The conflict of Nora and Torvald makes one of the finest scenes in modern [theater]. In terms of motion pictures it becomes a series of views of a man and a woman displaying emotions which have to be given meaning by dialogue flashed on the screen. - Vanity Fair EDIT

No Score Yet One Glorious Day (1922) One Glorious Day is the work of Walter Wood and A. B. Baringer. Unless it is a happy accident, it sets them down as knowing the secret of the good photoplay. - Vanity Fair EDIT

No Score Yet Saturday Night (1922) Will the big millions of the movie screen accept this challenge to their ancient faith? The skill with which De Mille has handled his material, his screen-wise development of plot and incident, coupled with charming acting... lead me to think they will. - Vanity Fair EDIT

No Score Yet Hilde Warren Und Der Tod (1917) There is no construction and the story has to take some considerable jumps. But it is all very good fun and often stimulating to the imagination. - Vanity Fair EDIT

92% Foolish Wives (1922) [von Stroheim's picture] is extravagant, of course, but it is unconventional and always arresting. His direction has a hard and cruel quality that fits the story. - Vanity Fair EDIT

No Score Yet Danton (1921) As a production, [Danton] has its bad points -- its very bad points; but it rises to a triumph of setting and stage management in the trial scene. - Vanity Fair EDIT

92% Orphans of the Storm (1921) If some other director had produced it, it would be an astonishing picture. Perhaps it is still an astonishing picture, but the astonishment is that Griffith should be content to make success out of serving up the French Revolution as deus ex machina. - Vanity Fair EDIT
