T-Meter Title | Year
86% Damaged Goods (1914) It is to be regretted that it is no better a piece of workmanship than it is, for in spite of its pictorial shortcomings, it will probably have a wide circulation and it might have been much more efficient in its purpose had it been more artistic. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

83% Brewster's Millions (1914) Mr. Abeles did many funny things, and his performances were the only ones that elicited any chuckle. Between his humorous oases there were arid spots of desert dullness. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

80% The Carpet from Bagdad (1915) One looks at the sights both of setting and fisticuffing of the one of which there is about as much as of the other, but it is hard to stir up a thrill of personal interest in the individual welfare of the fisticuffers. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

43% The Fall of a Nation (1916) The photography is not of the quality to which we are accustomed in these days of the art of the photoplay. - Chicago Tribune EDIT

No Score Yet Thais (1917) Miss Garden as the courtesan of Alexandria, and Hamilton Revelle, the monk, who saved her at his own peril, are two splendidly contrasted types who set the opera's story into picture language rich in color and texture, if not particularly warm in thrill. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

71% Madame Jealousy (1918) Pauline Frederick is a force to be reckoned with, even when she is effacing herself, a vital, concrete individual, a real gift to filmland. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

100% Hearts of the World (1918) Hearts of the World reaches the hearts of the world, which Is the ultimate accomplishment of any one who seeks to bring a message. It sinks into the thoughts, it asks another seeing. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

No Score Yet Down to Earth (1917) Down to Earth gives concrete expression to Mr. Fairbanks' good cheer notions. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

No Score Yet Betsy Ross (1917) It is a seemly, timely piece about love and patriotism, proceeding with nice discrimination, expressed in fine photography, illuminated throughout by the sparkling Alice Brady. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

No Score Yet The Little Princess (1917) There's no place for carping -- except maybe we are getting unused to close-ups and are as happy without them -- in the whole thing from any angle. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

No Score Yet Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp (1917) Aladdin is a lovely picture, material for much juvenile and grownup joy. But one wishes in a private, quiet way, that some producer would rise up and tell the old tales with true fidelity to their old ways -- that would be screen literature. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

89% Stella Maris (1918) Another milestone In the long lane of Pickford triumphs. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

38% Men Who Have Made Love to Me (1918) In Miss MacLane's animated, short-syllabled -- and sometimes profane -- musings, there's no such thing as soul. It's Mary MacLane here, there and everywhere, the essence of the ego. - Chicago Examiner EDIT

No Score Yet A Dog's Life (1918) A Dog's Life is a crystallization of the best Chaplinese. - Chicago Examiner EDIT
