Review: 'Peter Ibbetson'

By

From a technical standpoint, picture is just about tops, gaining so much weight in beauty and serenity that it almost overbears the incredulity of the story. George du Maurier wrote this story two…

Review: 'Page Miss Glory'

By

Same deficiency as in the play [by Joseph Schrank and Philip Dunning] occurs - the obvious. The farcical situations telegraph each ensuing denouement yards ahead. But the same fast and furious tempo…

Review: 'Oil for the Lamps of China'

By

This story, in book form, was a bestseller for over a year and caused a lot of talk. In transferring it to screen the filmers have taken many liberties, so that it evolves as a choppy, long, and…

Review: 'Nell Gwyn'

By

In toto it's a generally unsympathetic saga of a 17th-century music-hall trollop which requires a specially produced prolog to square existing moral standards and the Hays office. It opens in a hovel…

An adaptation of the Victor Herbert operetta [book and lyrics by Rida Johnson Young] which the singing of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy must carry. Much of the original score, plus a couple of…

Review: 'Mutiny on the Bounty'
