LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Keighley. Al Jolson, Sybil Jason, Edward Everett Horton, Lyle Talbot, Allen Jenkins, Beverly Roberts, Claire Dodd. Jolson plays a Broadway star who loses his voice and recuperates in the country, where he takes in a young girl--and finds romance. A star vehicle if there ever was one, and recommended only for Jolson fans. Musical appearances by Cab Calloway, Wini Shaw, and The Yacht Club Boys. Highlight of the Harold Arlen-E.Y. Harburg score: "I Love to Singa."

Al Jolson's a kid at heart with a heart full of song in this backstage tale of a knock-'em-dead star who loses his voice and fortune finds recovery and romance during a country... more

D: Edward Ludwig. Virginia Weidler, Ray McDonald, Leo Gorcey, "Rags" Ragland, Douglas McPhail, Sheldon Leonard, Henry O'Neill, Larry Nunn, Margaret Dumont, Darla Hood, Joe Yule. Second-string let's-put-on-a-show musical about kids who stage a patriotic Broadway revue is fast, funny, and amiable.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Busby Berkeley. Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Charles Winninger, Guy Kibbee, June Preisser, Douglas McPhail. Rodgers and Hart's musical, minus most of their songs, and one that's left, "Where or When," is trammeled to death. What remains is energetic but standard putting-on-a-show vehicle for Mickey and Judy. Dated fun. Original ending, "My Day," was a production number spoofing Mr. and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, which was removed for a 1948 reissue and later restored. Also shown in computer-colored version.

D: Busby Berkeley. Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Fay Bainter, Virginia Weidler, Richard Quine, Ray McDonald, Donna Reed.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Tod Browning. Lon Chaney, Joan Crawford, Norman Kerry, Nick De Ruiz, John George. Wild and wooly silent Chaney chiller about a criminal on the lam who hides out in a gypsy circus and pretends he has no arms. Ultra-creepy, even by Browning's bizarre standards, with an unforgettable finale.

Color
90 min

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.

A forerunner of the American horror film, and one of the most lavish productions of the silent cinema, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has inspired countless remakes and imitations. But... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roland West. Lon Chaney, Gertrude Olmstead, Hallam Cooley, Johnny Arthur, Charles Sellon. Overdose of comedy relief hampers moody Chaney mad-doctor doings; still OK, though, as whole film has tongue- in-cheek. From Crane Wilbur's play.

Lon Chaney plays the monstrous dourly expressive Ziska who gathers candidates for his eerie experiments by causing roadway accidents. While the Man of a Thousand Faces provides the... more

B/W
90 min

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Wallace Worsley. Lon Chaney, Ethel Grey Terry, Charles Clary, Claire Adams, Kenneth Harlan, James Mason, Cesare Gravina. Chaney is something to see as Blizzard, a cunning, sadistic crime lord, embittered because his legs were amputated by a negligent surgeon in childhood. Terry is the government operative assigned to infiltrate his den of iniquity. Melodramatic at times, but worth seeing for Chaney's bravura performance.

In a role that established him as one of the most dynamically terrifying performers of the silent screen, Lon Chaney stars in the Penalty, a grotesque thriller form director Wallace... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Tod Browning. Lon Chaney, Mae Busch, Matt Moore, Victor McLaglen, Harry Earles. In departure from horrific roles, Chaney plays sideshow ventriloquist who teams with strongman and midget to form underworld trio. Corny aspects of story can't mar fascination with basic idea, or Chaney's performance. Remade in 1930.

In this hypnotic mix of creepiness and crime Lon Chaney plays a ventriloquist who dons a granny disguise to team with a strongman and a little person in a bizarre robbery scheme that... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Victor Seastrom. Lon Chaney, Norma Shearer, John Gilbert, Tully Marshall, Marc McDermott, Ford Sterling. Brilliant scientist tries to bury personal tragedy under mask of circus clown, who falls in love with beautiful bareback rider (Shearer). Famous story becomes Pagliacci-type vehicle for Chaney.

The clown known as HE has made a comedic art of getting batted around. Behind the mask HE hides the torment of once being a brilliant scientist whose research and wife were stolen by... more
