Sheik, The (1921)

An Arabian sheik kidnaps a beautiful Englishwoman to win her heart.

DirGeorge Melford CastRudolph Valentino , Agnes Ayres , Ruth Miller .
B/W
86 min
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: George Melford. Rudolph Valentino, Agnes Ayres, Adolphe Menjou, Walter Long, Lucien Littlefield, George Waggner. Ayres, a "civilized'' woman, falls completely under the spell of desert chieftain Valentino. The silent film that helped create the Valentino legend is hokey and campy, but still entertaining. It's easy to see why women went crazy for the Latin star. Racist/imperialist angle of the story is equally fascinating. Followed by SON OF THE SHEIK.

In this silent film, when a young woman thinks her fiance has jilted her, she runs off to Paris and a life of sin.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Chaplin. Edna Purviance, Adolphe Menjou, Carl Miller, Lydia Knott, Charles French. French girl Purviance is set to marry her sweetheart (Miller), but a misunderstanding causes her to move to Paris, where she becomes the mistress of wealthy Menjou. Chaplin's one attempt to make a serious film (without himself as star) was quite sophisticated for its time, and remains interesting, even moving, today. It was a box-office flop in 1923; Chaplin reedited it, but waited until 1977 to reissue it, with his newly composed music score. Chaplin does a cameo as a railway porter, but he's virtually unrecognizable.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Jack Conway. Constance Bennett, Adolphe Menjou, Robert Montgomery, Marjorie Rambeau, Anita Page, Clark Gable, Hedda Hopper. Bennett rises from dire poverty to a life of luxury after becoming the mistress of advertising mogul Menjou, but finds heartbreak when she falls for reporter Montgomery. Watered-down adaptation of notorious play about high-priced call girls starts out great, then turns into a standard romantic triangle melodrama to satisfy the Hays Office. Gable has a small, but strong role in his first film as an MGM contract player.

D: Leo McCarey. Harold Lloyd, Adolphe Menjou, Verree Teasdale, Helen Mack, William Gargan, George Barbier, Dorothy Wilson, Lionel Stander. Milquetoasty milkman is recruited by scheming fight promoter Menjou after inadvertently knocking out the middleweight champion! Bland but entertaining film is one of Lloyd's best talkies. Remade, almost scene for scene, as THE KID FROM BROOKLYN, with Danny Kaye, but they couldn't top the hilarious ducking scene with Lloyd and matron Marjorie Gateson. Some prints run 83m.

Unique, but incredibly bad comedy, risque in its day, about husband and wife switching personalities thanks to magic Buddha; from a story by Thorne Smith, later a short-lived TV series in the 1970s.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wellman. Fredric March, Janet Gaynor, Adolphe Menjou, May Robson, Andy Devine, Lionel Stander, Franklin Pangborn. Two remakes haven't dimmed the glow of this drama about a self- destructive actor and the young movie hopeful he marries. March and Gaynor are at their best and 1930s flavor (captured in early Technicolor) is a plus; screenplay by Dorothy Parker, Alan Campbell, and Robert Carson was inspired in part by 1932 film WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD? Oscar- winner for original story (by Carson and director Wellman) and W. Howard Greene's cinematography.

D: Jack Conway. Grace Moore, Lawrence Tibbett, Adolphe Menjou, Roland Young, Gus Shy, Emily Fitzroy. While sailing the Caspian Sea on board the good ship New Moon, a previously engaged princess meets a dashing Army officer whom she can't resist or refuse. MGM's first version of the Oscar HammersteinSigmund Romberg operetta jettisons the libretto and shifts the setting to Russia, but at least it retains the score. Powerfully vocalized by the two Metropolitan Opera leads, and packed full of sexual innuendo with no pretense of propriety.
