LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: (none credited). The title tells all in this fascinating document of U.S. Navy Rear-Admiral Richard E. Byrd, his crew, and their journey by sea from N.Y.C. to the Antarctic, culminating with his Polar flight. Film plays as part historical record, part promotional film hyping Byrd (complete with rah-rah narration in the final sequence). Despite this, it's still a remarkable film. William Van der Veer and Joseph T. Rucker's stunning cinematography earned an Academy Award.

D: Robert Stevenson. Paul Robeson, Cedric Hardwicke, Roland Young, John Loder, Anna Lee. Robust adventure given full-blooded treatment by fine cast, exploring Africa in search of treasure-filled mines. One of Robeson's best screen roles even allows him to sing. H.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Kurt Neumann. George Montgomery, Taina Elg, David Farrar, Rex Ingram, Dan Seymour. MGM fabricated a sequel to KING SOLOMON'S MINES to utilize leftover footage from its 1950 version of H. Rider Haggard yarn.

The action and adventure never stop in this thrill-packed sequel to King Solomon's Mines, starring George Montgomery and directed by Kurt Neumann (The Fly). Determined to succeed... more

D: King Vidor. Eleanor Boardman, James Murray, Bert Roach, Daniel G. Tomlinson, Dell Henderson, Lucy Beaumont.

Weaver, and director Vidor, from the latter's original story.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Charles Laughton. Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, Evelyn Varden, Peter Graves, James Gleason, Billy Chapin, Sally Jane Bruce. Atmospheric allegory of innocence, evil, and hypocrisy, with psychotic religious fanatic Mitchum chasing homeless children for money stolen by their father. Mitchum is marvelously menacing, matched by Gish as wise matron who takes in the kids. Starkly directed by Laughton; his only film behind the camera. Screenplay credited to James Agee, from the Davis Grubb novel. Remade as a TVM in 1991 with Richard Chamberlain.

The Night of the Hunter - incredibly, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed - is truly a standalone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy... more
