CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Tay Garnett. Ann Harding, Melvyn Douglas, Adolphe Menjou, Clarence Muse, Ian MacLaren. Flamboyant direction and solid performances elevate hackneyed melodrama about life at French Army outpost in the Far East where White Supremacy--and Douglas' sanity--are threatened.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Leslie Fenton. Melvyn Douglas, Louise Platt, Gene Lockhart, Douglass Dumbrille, Sara Haden, Florence George, Zeffie Tilbury. Editor tries to save his dying newspaper by capturing notorious kidnappers himself. Good B picture with some telling vignettes (particularly a black boxer's wake), though it doesn't hold up to the finish.

D: Frank Borzage. Joan Crawford, Margaret Sullavan, Robert Young, Melvyn Douglas, Fay Bainter, Allyn Joslyn, Hattie McDaniel, Frank Albertson. N.Y.C. nightclub performer Crawford marries into Wisconsin farm family, leading to emotional fireworks. Crawford and Sullavan (as her sister-in-law) provide interesting contrast in this overwrought soap opera.

Love (1927)

In this updated, silent adaptation of Anna Karenina, a married woman sacrifices everything for the love of a military officer.

DirEdmund Goulding CastGreta Garbo , John Gilbert , George Fawcett .
83 min,
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edmund Goulding. Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, George Fawcett, Emily Fitzroy, Brandon Hurst, Philippe De Lacy. Silent version of Anna Karenina in modern setting, as married Garbo falls in love with dashing military guard Gilbert, an affair doomed from start. Lesser entry for famed screen lovers, with Gilbert's eyebrow-raising gestures at their worst. Garbo's 1935 remake (ANNA KARENINA) is much better. MGM actually filmed two endings--one happy, one sad.

D: John S. Robertson. Greta Garbo, Nils Asther, John Mack Brown, Dorothy Sebastian, Lane Chandler. Greta is a San Francisco debutante, a free soul who breaks convention and has an affair with artist Asther. Pretty silly stuff, but Garbo is as beautiful as ever.
