99% Citizen Kane (1941) The sheer brilliance and audacity of Citizen Kane... make the film the most astounding cinematic achievement of the season. It ranks with Disney's Fantasia as a milestone in motion picture technique. - Boston Globe EDIT

93% The Hitch-hiker (1953) Don't take any children to see The Hitch-Hiker. And if anyone who sees the film ever picks up hitch-hikers again, he'll deserve what may happen. - Boston Globe EDIT

90% Babes in Arms (1939) When the film is finished, it is still the Rooney-Garland combination which has put the picture over as one of the most entertaining and laughable of the year. - Boston Globe EDIT

99% Casablanca (1942) It is excitingly acted, smartly directed, and tells a story crammed with suspense, characterization and action. The cast of players is enough to fill the theatre alone, for it includes some of the finest players Hollywood has to boast about. - Boston Globe EDIT

100% Scarlet Street (1945) You can be assured that Mr. Robinson, Miss Bennett and Mr. Duryea give their best melodramatic efforts to this study of crime and its sure punishment. - Boston Globe EDIT

85% Spellbound (1945) A fascinating, grim, exciting motion picture, based on the currently popular interest in psychiatry, and illustrating a new method of crime detection. It is a "whodunit" (the current name for mystery dramas) raised to a de luxe intellectual plane. - Boston Globe EDIT

81% The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) The scene in which Sinatra writhes and screams in pain and delirium is one of the most shocking I have ever seen on the screen. But it is strong and effective, and, I believe, justifiable. - Boston Globe EDIT

80% First Comes Courage (1943) Aherne and Miss Oberon are convincing actors and make the old stuff look up-to-date and even worthwhile. The shoddiness is of story rather than acting or direction. - Boston Globe EDIT

81% Cabin in the Sky (1943) [Cabin in the Sky] is one of the most charming, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable pictures that Hollywood has sent out in some time. - Boston Globe EDIT

61% Outrage (1950) The picture has a message of hope for such girls and mistreated women who feel themselves in an abyss of despair through no fault of their own. - Boston Globe EDIT

98% Pather Panchali (1955) There is a simplicity, an honesty, a zest for living to be found in this film of India which is surprisingly exciting. - Boston Globe EDIT

84% 4 Devils (1928) Thrilling scenes of life in a European circus, fine acting on the part of Janet Gaynor and an excellent cast and some first-rate photography and camera work combine to make Four Devils... a photoplay worth seeing. - Boston Globe EDIT

97% Double Indemnity (1944) A powerful, ruthless and almost cruelly exciting picture in which Fred MacMurray and Bareara Stanwyck do the finest acting of their respective careers. - Boston Globe EDIT

90% Gilda (1946) This reviewer is completely baffled as to... what happened during the picture, and what the whole idea was. But maybe it was because she was just so overwhelmed by the astounding characterization of Rita Hayworth in the title role. - Boston Globe EDIT

83% The Paradine Case (1948) [The Paradine Case] has almost everything to recommend it: a superb director, Alfred Hitchcock; an impressive cast, a typical expensive and authentic production by David O. Selznick and an exciting story. - Boston Globe EDIT

97% Rear Window (1954) The story is told with tricks and intricate technique, but the mystery magician, Mr. Hitchcock, never forgets that what people want most is a spine-chilling climax. He gives it to them. - Boston Globe EDIT
