T-Meter Title | Year
92% Paris (1929) As on the stage, Miss Bordoni seems best suited to the revue type of entertainment where she can come and go In specialties to turn loose her full strength. - Variety EDIT

60% Three Week-Ends (1928) Nothing great about this one. Just frothy light and in showing wild youth cooped up in the tenement district. - Variety EDIT

67% Beau Sabreur (1928) This tale is far under the horsepower of which Geste could boast. - Variety EDIT

67% The Dove (1927) The Dove doesn't threaten to get under the skin and hasn't the dramatic intensity of the play. It's spasmodically slow. - Variety EDIT

50% A Blind Bargain (1922) Somewhat fantastic, it takes a bit of stretching of the Imagination to swallow this story, and beyond the work of the star himself there Is nothing to raise this film above the average feature. - Variety EDIT

40% Camille (1926) Fred Niblo and Miss Talmadge have dedicated a pretty love story to the screen that lacks the punch to make it a standout. - Variety EDIT

100% The Cradle Snatchers (1927) With or without the play in mind Cradle Snatchers makes a corking program leader that guarantees laughs. - Variety EDIT

50% The Beautiful and Damned (1922) It screens as mostly u catch-as-catch-can presentation of the story, neither covering the territory which the bound edition did nor Is it as interesting. - Variety EDIT

86% My Man (1928) My Man is about the same as watching a recital by Fannie Brlce in all the best things she has ever done. I ought to be good and is, but it doesn't lessen the fact that Miss Brice looks like a one-picture star. - Variety EDIT

88% The Way of All Flesh (1927) No specific punch to this initial made-in-the-U.S.A. Jannings release. - Variety EDIT

44% Coquette (1929) It neither grasps nor holds the imagination as did the play for three pretty fair reasons -- cast, change In story and a repeated tendency to become too talkie and motionless. - Variety EDIT

No Score Yet Our Dancing Daughters (1928) [Our Dancing Daughters] is sumptuously mounted, gets plenty of playing from three girls and is sufficiently physically teasing. - Variety EDIT

93% Wings (1927) There not being so much of Clara Bow in the picture, or a straining for her to turn on that 'it' personality, she gives an all around corking performance. - Variety EDIT

98% City Lights (1931) The British comic is still the consummate pantomimist, unquestionably one of the greatest the stage or screen has ever known. - Variety EDIT

33% The Broadway Melody (1929) Excellent bits of sound workmanship are that of camera and mike following Page and the heavy along the dance floor to pick up their conversation as they glide. - Variety EDIT
