Spione (1928)

The mastermind behind a ubiquitous spy operation learns of a dangerous romance between a Russian lady in his employ and a dashing agent from the government's secret service.

DirFritz Lang CastRudolf Klein-Rogge , Gerda Maurus , Willy Fritsch .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Fritz Lang. Rudolph Klein-Rogge, Gerda Maurus, Willy Fritsch, Lupu Pick, Fritz Rasp.

"Silent spy-thriller still packs a wallop as government agent Fritsch determines to thwart seemingly-respectable Klein-Rogge, a wheelchair-bound master-fiend with an uncanny resemblance to Lenin! One of Lang's early masterpieces, aka SPIONE."

In this silent film, a young coward thinks a magical charm can make him a hero.

DirFred Newmeyer CastHarold Lloyd , Mildred Davis , Anna Townsend .

 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Fred Newmeyer. Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis, Anna Townsend, Charles Stevenson, Noah Young, Dick Sutherland.

"Lloyd's first great success casts him as a mousy small-town type inspired to fight for his girl--and his honor--by his grandma's tales of family heritage. Still entertaining."

In this silent film, a millionaire tries to help save souls after he falls for a young mission-worker.

DirSam Taylor CastHarold Lloyd , Jobyna Ralston , Noah Young .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Sam Taylor. Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston, Noah Young, James Mason, Paul Weigel. "Screamingly funny silent comedy has Lloyd a blase young millionaire whose crush on Ralston inspires him to help attract ``customers'' for her father's Bowery Mission. Even THE FRENCH CONNECTION hasn't dimmed the luster of Lloyd's chase climax on L.A. streets."
