In this silent film, a hideously deformed man haunts the sewers beneath the Paris Opera.

DirRupert Julian CastLon Chaney , Mary Philbin , Norman Kerry .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Rupert Julian. Lon Chaney, Mary Philbin, Norman Kerry, Snitz Edwards, Gibson Gowland. Classic melodrama with Chaney as the vengeful composer who lives in the catacombs under the Paris Opera House and kidnaps young Philbin as his singing protegee. Famous unmasking scene still packs a jolt, and the Bal Masque is especially impressive in two-color Technicolor. One of Chaney's finest hours. Most prints are of the 1929 reissue version, but the original is available on DVD; running times vary. Remade several times, and transformed into a Broadway musical.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Lloyd Bacon. Dorothy Mackaill, Lewis Stone, Natalie Moorhead, Hobart Bosworth, Joan Blondell, Blanche Frederici. Sexy secretary (Mackaill) at a publishing company sets a trap for her wealthy older boss (Stone), who resists her charms until he learns his young new bride (Moorhead) is cheating. Charmingly dated piece of "naughty'' fluff, with sassy support by Blondell as Mackaill's impudent sister and Frederici in a bizarre bit as an ultra-masculine, cigar-smoking authoress.

A small-town dentist longs to avenge an old friend who stole his love, but discovers there's no need.

DirStephen Roberts CastGary Cooper , Fay Wray , Neil Hamilton .
69 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Stephen Roberts. Gary Cooper, Fay Wray, Neil Hamilton, Frances Fuller, Roscoe Karns, Jane Darwell. Cooper is at boyish best in this original version of James Hagan's play about a turn-of-the-century dentist and how his infatuation with a sexy vamp (Wray) who weds his rival almost ruins his marriage and his life. Touching and lovingly made piece of Americana, exuding period charm and atmosphere, though darker in tone than the two Warner Bros. remakes by Raoul Walsh: as THE STRAWBERRY BLONDE in 1941, then under the original title as a 1948 Technicolor musical.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Sam Wood. Groucho, Chico, Harpo Marx, Kitty Carlisle, Allan Jones, Walter Woolf King, Margaret Dumont, Sigfried Rumann. The Marx Brothers invade the world of opera with devastating results. Arguably their finest film (a close race with DUCK SOUP), with tuneful music and appealing romance neatly interwoven. One priceless comedy bit follows another: the stateroom scene, the Party of the First Part contract, etc. This is as good as it gets.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wyler. Bette Davis, Henry Fonda, George Brent, Margaret Lindsay, Donald Crisp, Fay Bainter, Spring Byington, Richard Cromwell, Henry O'Neill. Davis won her second Oscar as tempestuous Southern belle who goes too far to make fiance Fonda jealous; Bainter also received Oscar as Davis' sympathetic aunt. Fine production, entire cast excellent. John Huston was one of the writers. Also shown in computer-colored version.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: George Cukor. Norma Shearer, Leslie Howard, John Barrymore, Edna May Oliver, Basil Rathbone, C. Aubrey Smith, Andy Devine, Reginald Denny, Ralph Forbes. Well-acted, lavish production of Shakespeare's play about ill-fated lovers. Howard and Shearer are so good that one can forget they are too old for the roles. Not the great film it might have been, but a very good one.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Irving Reis. Henry Fonda, Lucille Ball, Barton MacLane, Eugene Pallette, Agnes Moorehead, Sam Levene, Ray Collins, Hans Conried, Ozzie Nelson and Orchestra. Damon Runyon produced this treacly adaptation of his own Collier's magazine story "Little Pinks," about a timid busboy who devotes himself to a self-centered nightclub singer. Odd (and oddly watchable), with very unconventional roles for both Fonda and Ball.

D: Irving Rapper. Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Gladys Cooper, Bonita Granville, John Loder, Ilka Chase, Lee Patrick, Mary Wickes, Janis Wilson. Vintage, first-class soaper with Bette as sheltered spinster brought out of her shell by psychiatrist Rains, falling in love with suave Henreid, helping shy girl Wilson. All this set to beautiful, Oscar-winning Max Steiner music makes for top entertainment of this kind. Olive Higgins Prouty's bestseller was adapted by Casey Robinson.
