horror

DirRoland West CastLon Chaney , Gertrude Olmsted , Hallam Cooley .

 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."

drama
Blot, The (1921)

Families from opposite ends of the economic scale are drawn together.

DirLois Weber CastPhilip Hubbard , Margaret McWade , Claire Windsor .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Lois Weber. Claire Windsor, Louis Calhern, Philip Hubbard, Margaret McWade, Marie Walcamp.

"Earnest, humanistic account of economic barriers between the classes, spotlighting the pretty daughter (Windsor) of a grievously underpaid college professor who is courted by three men, including wealthy, spoiled student Calhern. Meanwhile, the professor's wife has trouble with her nouveau riche immigrant neighbors. Overly melodramatic at times, but still a notable work for its long-ignored director."
