What a movie!
- Bridget Schooley
This film was my first introduction to John Gilbert...and what an introduction! I immediately fell for Mr. Gilbert and his talent. He can convey so much with his facial expressions and body language that it's no wonder he was so successful in silents. von Stroheim did a great job with this film and Roy D'Arcy plays, as always, a wonderful villian-type. It's well worth watching and TCM should show it more often since it's so good. I haven't seen this version show up in their schedule for an extremely long time. Show it, TCM!!!!
John Gilbert deserves to be re-discovered
This was the first John Gilbert film I watched on TCM. I didn't realize it is he in several of the film clips introducing the silent films with Robert Osborne. He was of those rare actors whose screen presence hold's the viewer's attention no matter who else is on the screen. This is such a charming and beautiful version of the story. The scene in which he waltzes with May Murray as Sally is mesmerizing. Especially, because the music is timed perfectly to their movements. When they pause, the music pauses, then resumes as they continue their waltz. It's too bad this film as not been available for sale. I would buy this and any other of his films in a second.
The Merry wiidow (1925)
This move is good,and I love it !!!!!!!! I would love to buy it. It's the best silent romance and drama move I have ever seen. I wouled really love to buy it on dvd. Thanks TMC for the Sunday night silent films I always enjoy them!
John Gilbert - Time to recognize a great talent!
The Merry Widow with John Gilbert is one of the most charming versions of the famous play. He was a great Lover of the Silent Era and it is time to recognize it. Why not issue a movie collection with his most memorable works, such as the newly discovered Bardelis the Magnificent, The Merry Widow, Love and other silents with him and Garbo. It would be a terrific gift to all John's fans and a great way to revive and keep the rememberance of his wonderful talent. Sincerely,T
