Review: 'Babes in Toyland'

By

Babes in Toyland is far away from the Victor Herbert original operetta. The arithmetic song and 'March of the Toys' are the only outstanding survivors of Herbert's score, and these are merely…

Review: 'Anne of Green Gables'

By

Anne of Green Gables is wholesome, sympathetic, romantic and dramatic, packing many a heart-tug and tear-jerk. It will do much to establish Anne Shirley, who has taken her professional nom-de-screen…

Review: 'Duck Soup'

By

Practically everybody wants a good laugh right now and "Duck Soup" should make practically everybody laugh. It is humorous in the typical Marx Bros. style, a style that happens to be popular. Picture…

Review: 'King Kong'

By

That it lends itself so freely and readily to 12-cylinder exploiting is "King Kong's" ace in the hole. If properly handled the picture should gather good grosses in a walk. Film appeals to the…

Review: 'Cavalcade'

Here's a big, brave and beautiful picture. It's pretty certain and solid road show material. It'll call forth all the adjectives the critical boys in the dailies can think up. It'll bring Fox and…
