CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wyler. Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Dame May Whitty, Teresa Wright, Reginald Owen, Henry Travers, Richard Ney, Henry Wilcoxon, Helmut Dantine, Peter Lawford. Moving drama about middle- class English family learning to cope with war. Winner of six Academy Awards--for Garson, Wright, director Wyler, and Best Picture, among others--this film did much to rally American support for our British allies during WW2, though its depiction of English life was decidedly Hollywoodized. Screenplay by Arthur Wimperis, George Froeschel, James Hilton, and Claudine West; based on Jan Struther's short stories. Sequel: THE MINIVER STORY. Also shown in computer-colored version.

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.

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.

D: Howard Bretherton, William Keighley. Barbara Stanwyck, Preston Foster, Lyle Talbot, Dorothy Burgess, Maude Eburne, Lillian Roth, Ruth Donnelly. Stanwyck is terrific in this punchy but occasionally silly pre-Code women's prison picture. She's a tough cookie who's sent up the river after participating in a bank heist.

D: Ted Wilde. Loretta Young, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Louise Fazenda, Ethel Wales, Otis Harlan, Daphne Pollard, Inez Courtney. Young and her greedy family will inherit a fortune if she stays scandal-free and marries a man whom her prissy aunts approve of. She decides to teach her relatives a lesson by advertising for a gigolo, who shows up in the person of love-struck Fairbanks. Giddy early-talkie farce performed with zeal, boasting some smart lines and a fine sense of the absurd.

D: Thornton Freeland. Loretta Young, David Manners, George Brent, Louis Calhern, Una Merkel, Elizabeth Patterson. Restless small-town girl is wooed by visiting New Yorker, and follows him to the big city, where she discovers he's engaged to another woman. Interesting at first, then increasingly silly and predictable, but the stars certainly are attractive. Merkel is fun as Loretta's perky pal.

D: William A. Wellman. Richard Barthelmess, Loretta Young, Aline MacMahon, Robert Barrat, Grant Mitchell, Douglass Dumbrille, Charles Grapewin, Ward Bond. Potent melodrama with Barthelmess as an American Everyman who manages to survive one calamity after another--from morphine addiction (as a result of a WW1 injury) to job-hunting during the Depression--and continues to endure, like the country itself. Ambitious script by Wilson Mizner and Robert Lord tackles everything from the hypocrisy of hero worship to Communism! A fascinating social document of the early 1930s.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Howard Hawks. Paul Muni, Ann Dvorak, George Raft, Boris Karloff, Karen Morley, Vince Barnett, Osgood Perkins, C. Henry Gordon. Powerful gangster film is the most potent of the 1930s, with Muni delivering emotionally charged performance as Capone-like mobster with more than just a soft spot for his sister (Dvorak). Raw, harsh, and brimming with unsubtle symbolism; five writers include Ben Hecht and W.R. Burnett. Filmed in 1931, release delayed by censors. The full title is SCARFACE, THE SHAME OF THE NATION. Remade in 1983.
