    The stillness – like a running statue...

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Judge Priest

    Gentil et des fois un peu trop poussif ! www.cinefiches.com

  3. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Judge Priest

    "The first thing I learned about politics was when to say ain't"

  4. Brendan's rating of the film Judge Priest

    Funnier than The Sun Shines Bright, but not nearly as striking

  5. malia hs's rating of the film Judge Priest

    This lesser-known and often misunderstood Ford is fantastic. The performances of Will Rogers, Stephin Fetchit, and Hattie McDaniel are spellbinding.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Judge Priest

    The down home charm of Will Rogers in the title role almost saves this dated, clichéd, borderline racist film but only almost. Between the use of Stepin Fetchit and the gospel singing of 'the help' this films seems more like a Griffith relic then a Ford. Tale of 1890 Kentucky judge fails dramatically and provides a miss in the Ford canon.

  7. Mic in Port's rating of the film Judge Priest

    A mixed film for me. Nothing here is exceptionally entertaining, except maybe Will Rogers, and even then only in a small capacity. As my first introduction to Stepin Fetchit it was a very dissonant film, and with its southern backdrop of Lost Cause supporters, seems a little too on-the-nose about America's race problems. Hoping to find better Rogers and Ford vehicles than this, but not a wholly regrettable viewing
