Lady Hamilton's love affair with Admiral Nelson rocks the British Empire.

DirFrank Lloyd CastCorinne Griffith , Victor Varconi , H. B. Warner .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Frank Lloyd. Corinne Griffith, Victor Varconi, H. B. Warner, Ian Keith, Marie Dressler, Dorothy Cumming, Montagu Love.

"Lloyd won an Oscar for directing this lavishly appointed if bowdlerized account of the scandalous affair of Lady Emma Hamilton and Lord Nelson. Lloyd, who later made MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, stages some exciting sea battles, while the sumptuous sets, costumes, and photography create a convincing period look. Silent with some synchronized singing sequences. Same story was later told in THAT HAMILTON WOMAN and THE NELSON AFFAIR."

Never realized William Haines was such a fine comedy actor until "The Smart Set."He reminded me of Jack Lemmon and a bit of Tom Hanks No wonder he was tops at the box office in 1930! He gave depression audiences laughs and humor then. And even today his acting style doesn't seem dated and is fun to watch.

Be sure to watch Sparrows if you haven't seen it, especially for Pickford fans and fans of melodrama.  Look for the swamp sequence which holds up to this day.

Sparrows (1926)

In this silent film, the oldest of a band of orphans watches over them while they are being used as slaves.

DirWilliam Beaudine CastMary Pickford , Gustav von Seyffertitz , Roy Stewart .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Beaudine. Mary Pickford, Gustav von Seyffertitz, Roy Stewart, Mary Louise Miller, Charlotte Mineau, Spec O'Donnell.

"One of Mary's best silent pictures is a fullblooded melodrama about intrepid girl who struggles to protect band of younger orphans from their wicked captor."
