In this silent film, a photographer takes up newsreel shooting to impress a movie queen.

DirEdward Sedgwick CastBuster Keaton , Marceline Day , Harold Goodwin .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edward Sedgwick. Buster Keaton, Marceline Day, Harold Goodwin, Sidney Bracy, Harry Gribbon, Edward Brophy.

"Buster plays a lovesick would-be newsreel cameraman in this entertaining silent comedy, a cut below his masterpieces but still brimming with invention, ingenious set-pieces, and big laughs. Remade with Red Skelton as WATCH THE BIRDIE."

In this silent film, Cecil B. DeMille directs an epic retelling of the life of Christ.

DirCecil B. De Mille CastH. B. Warner , Dorothy Cumming , Ernest Torrence .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Cecil B. DeMille. H. B. Warner, Ernest Torrence, Jacqueline Logan, Joseph Schildkraut, Victor Varconi, Robert Edeson, William Boyd.

"Lavish silent film holds up rather well, benefits from DeMille's superb storytelling skills and reverence for the subject. The Resurrection sequence is in two-color Technicolor. Some prints run 115m. Remade in 1961."
