  • George Arliss A Timeless Actor !

    I could watch George Arliss act over and over again. Personally I feel he very well could be an inspiration to many. At times he appears to be performing his own personal monologue which includes perfectly timed facial expressions. Yet, his relaxed style is so infectious or hypnotic he becomes the center of each film he appears in. That particular style may very well have been copied by Peter O'Toole in "Lawrence of Arabia" and Robert DeNiro in "Taxi Driver". Its a narrative but it is so well cultivated that it permeates everything that surrounds it. He is worthy of five stars - again.

    Very entertaining in a quirky sort of way. The Raja has the best part. What he says about the Brittish Empire in regard to his country; true at the time & how he delivers some of the most humorous lines. The movie is even a little risque for the day in regard to his last overtures of desire to Mrs. Crespin. Great on so many levels.

  • Worth so much more than 2 stars

    Maybe this academy award winning movie seems a bit over the top for some, it is without a doubt a great classic movie that goes far beyond just funny or cute to watch. The way these silent actors show the emotions in their face and in every movement of their bodies is nothing short of pure stardom! The Green Goddess (1930) is a perfect example. I enjoy watching this movie as much as I do any Tarzan movie. Sit back, take a nice comfortable chair turn off all the distractions of our world and watch a true star show how sound is only an option when it comes to expressing the scene. Enjoy

    George Arliss excels in this melodrama based on the stage play in which Arliss also starred. The plot revolves around a fanatical potentate (The Raja) planning the execution of three British citizens who happen to crash land in the Raja's domain.The film is played a bit tongue-in-cheek. However it is an interesting artifact from the early days of talkies. And the closing line of the film is a gem.Highly recommended.

    George Arliss stars in the adaptation of stage play he starred in during the early 1920's. This talking picture version is a remake of the earlier silent "Green Goddess" in which Arliss also starred. Arliss was nominated for best actor in "The Green Goddess." Any and all George Arliss films are interesting, fun to watch, entertaining. This is no exception. Arliss is excellent and plays the wicked Raja to its fullest.
