  3. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Champ

    I need to see again as the seamless sweep of Vidor and these actors' characterizations is uncanny. Vidor's camera always longs to know and learn something about these people, their grouping within this milieu, their sympathy, comfort, failings. A series of vignettes revealing a world, a way of life that cannot sustain itself. Yes, as with Chaplin, motion is emotion. Movement reveals these people, sustains them.

  4. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Champ

    The chemistry & performances by Berry & Cooper alongside Vidor's direction are the highlights of the standard melodrama that's brought down by its screenplay.
