Ratings & Reviews

  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Merry Widow

    The waltz scene between May Murray and John Gilbert is already in the annals of Cinema. Highly recommended.

  2. ermete polpette's rating of the film The Merry Widow

  3. Pedro Vaz Simoes's rating of the film The Merry Widow

    Mae Murray, John Gilbert and everything else. Haunting and absolute perfection.

  4. Dale Wittig's rating of the film The Merry Widow

    It's difficult to imagine that a silent adaptation of a great operetta could be superior to a sound version, but such is the case. As beautiful and charming as Lubitsch's film with MacDonald and Chevalier is, Stroheim's is infinitely more moving and better looking as well. John Gilbert and Mae Murray are surprisingly poignant as lovers whose wealth and station keep getting in their way and Roy D'Arcy is truly wicked.
