      The Black Pirate (1926) Martin Dickstein It is my guess that you will like The Black Pirate immensely. It will afford you as exciting an evening as ever you are likely to spend before the screen.

      The Devil Horse (1926) Martin Dickstein This may afford rare entertainment for, as they say, lovers of horseflesh. More practical moviegoers will find... a number of lovely desert and mountain scenes together with many instances of moving camera manipulations by the aforementioned Hal Roach.

      Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928) Martin Dickstein This is not perhaps the funniest picture which the stony-faced pantomimist has ever made(The Navigator, for example) but it will provide you with at least halt ta laughs of the, er, abdominal variety.

      The Dark Angel (1935) John Reddington Blessed by a first-rate job of direction by Sidney Franklin, and three equally impressive acting performances by Merle Oberon, Fredric March, and Herbert Marshal.

      Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) Jane Corby There is an appealingly human quality about this film that may well get to any adult audience, even to those who never had a glove laid on them or even saw a prize fight.

      Frankenstein (1931) Martin Dickstein It might have degenerated into mere stuff and nonsense. Instead, it sets you quivering on more than one occasion, and leaves you a bit shaken after it's all over.

      The Lady Eve (1941) Herbert Cohn The Lady Eve is Preston Sturges' way of sneering at the law of averages and laying down the gauntlet to the fates... Sometimes he has got to crack, but that is not now: The Lady Eve is a honey.

      Gentleman's Agreement (1947) Herbert Cohn It states its case with such frankness, such screen grace and such persuasiveness that it will do more for man's understanding of man than the most militant haranguer. And not for an instant does it fail to be a captivating screen show.

      The Maltese Falcon (1941) Herbert Cohn The Maltese Falcon is a beguiling melodrama that does nothing the ordinary way. In fact, by strict motion picture standards, it shouldn't even click. But it does, and big.

      Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) Jane Corby Vincente Minnelli has been sensible about directing Meet Me in St. Louis. He didn't go out of his way to spill tears, or even try hard for laughs -- he just let things take their course.

      King Kong (1933) Martin Dickstein King Kong is, to say the least, a novelty among talking pictures. It is also, if you will allow us to be entirely honest, a little bit silly... Cooper and Schoedsack, we think, should have devoted their talents to some more credible theme.

      Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) Herbert Cohn Mr. Smith Goes to Washington [is] a meaningful social commentary and a delightful bundle of entertainment despite its weaknesses. For that the credit goes to Capra, to Stewart and to Miss Arthur.

      The Shop Around the Corner (1940) Herbert Cohn [The supporting players] make a pleasant gallery of simple people talking chit-chat while Mr. Lubitsch and his charming leading couple magically transform a small bundle of comedy into a good-sized lark.

      Stalag 17 (1953) Jane Corby Stalag 17 is one of those rare pictures that has an intrinsically arresting quality. This overall effect stems from the script itself, the racy dialogue (which, in fact, only seems racy) and the casting, which is uniformly superb.

      The President's Mystery (1936) Winston Burdett The picture works up considerable interest.

      The Thief of Bagdad (1924) Martin Dickstein [Anna May Wong] furnishes one of the outstanding personalities in this new Fairbanks film. So-Jin is splendid... and Snitz Edwards, as the evil associate of The Thief, is also deserving of much credit for his very effective interpretation of the role.

      Java Head (1934) Winston Burdett [Java Head] proceeds from a fairly arresting situation, becomes suddenly vague toward the middle and hastens thence to a pat and unsatisfying conclusion.

      Shanghai Express (1932) Martin Dickstein The contributory characterizations by Lawrence Grant, Louise Closser Hale, Gustav von Seyffertitz, Emile Chautard and Anna May Wong are as nearly perfect as they can be.

      The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) Arthur Pollock We have never believed the movie capable of amounting to anything worth mentioning. This film gives evidence that they can if the men who make them want them to.

      Cobra Woman (1944) Jane Corby It is in an atmosphere, therefore, of uncertainty, though undeniable beauty, that Jon Hall pursues his oft-pursued romance with Maria Montez in Cobra Woman.

      High Noon (1952) Jane Corby High Noon is just what a Western should be -- a page out of American folklore, a close-to-the-soil delineation of human characters, played against a true-to-life background.

      Battling Butler (1926) Morris Kinzler The first half of the picture drags with an awkwardness and weariness that should never be there. Mr. Keaton evidently prefers a whirlwind finish, and his aim. it seems, is to leave a last impression. He accomplishes his aim, and admirably, too.

      The Life of Emile Zola (1937) Gould Cassal By compressing and transposing events, the scenarists have been able to distill a satisfactorily active account which is always sincere, dignified and arresting.

      Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) John Reddington By any standard, one of the most picturesque and beautifully photographed of movies, it is that rare avis among films -- an excellent story retold in a manner possible only for the screen.

      How Green Was My Valley (1941) Herbert Cohn Make no mistake about it: How Green Was My Valley, weaknesses and all, is a grand screen production. Its acting is magnificent and its direction is compelling without being pretentious.

      The Rogue Song (1930) Martin Dickstein Frankly, The Rogue Song is hardly a composition of such merit as to deserve the distinction of serving as Mr. Tibbett's first vehicle before the movie microphones.

      Ten Modern Commandments (1927) Martin Dickstein Directress Arzner has been notably successful in depicting the flurry of an opening night backstage.

      Neptune's Daughter (1914) Eagle Staff The struggle for life under the water, and the scene in which [Kellermann] is cast, bound hand and foot, from a cliff 60 feet high Into the sea were among the most exciting.

      From Here to Eternity (1953) Jane Corby James Jones' book, From Here to Eternity, has been made into Oscar-bait movie, superlatively written for the screen, ingeniously directed, brilliantly cast and acted and dramatically photographed.

      The Lost Weekend (1945) Jane Corby As a subject for discussion, it's the film of the year. It is cinematically speaking, a brilliant achievement, with two sequences standing out as high points of film horror, on a strict realistic basis.

      Mrs. Miniver (1942) Herbert Cohn No one person in Mrs. Miniver alone is responsible for its beauty; it is the result of superb craftsmanship by all concerned... But If any one is to be singled out for special praise it should be Teresa Wright, who gives a knockout performance.

      Nightmare Alley (1947) Herbert Cohn When it began to slip, it slipped fast. It soon became so shabby that, by the end, the ghostly polish it had had at the beginning was completely forgotten.

      The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Winston Burdett Though it is a flattering tribute to the taste of the late showman, The Great Ziegfeld is also an apt one, for it has the same combination of gaudiness and elegance, of show and finish, which you associate with a good "Follies."
