Critic Reviews for Smilin' Through
It is a beautiful production, too immaculate, if anything, in its scenes of the past.
In interpretation, in acting and in the fine presentation of all its poetically romantic qualities, this version is a worthy successor to the earlier transcription.
Audience Reviews for Smilin' Through
It didn't take long to remake this one but the original is quite something to behold. Shearer and March are at their finest.
79/100. Solid melodrama, excellent MGM production. The cast is great, Norma Shearer is radiant and gives a fine performance. Fredric March is fine as well. Very sentimental, but its so well done. Good story, excellent art direction.
Quite possibly one of the most underrated movies of all time. It's really very beautiful. Norma Shearer's performance is really wonderful. She plays to different characters in different time periods, and makes each one interesting and unique on their own, while still establishing their similarities. Fredric March is charming, and Leslie Howard gives a really great performance as well, playing the same character in two different periods.
