  4. José Neves's rating of the film Tol'able David

    "Desire" list. Unforgettable Richard Barthelmess, in an interpretation of a Henry King movie at all debtor of Griffith's melodramas, by the the characters. environments and look. So again, by an interposed director, it's through a Griffith view that this actor, which was extraordinary, finds a lyricism that makes him an icon of male poeticity.

  7. Sotter's rating of the film Tol'able David

    "It's made and especially photographed with skill but I still don't think it's a fundamentally interesting film" applies here as well although Tourneur's skill-as-photographic artistry is replaced here by King's skill which is realized only as slick professionalism. And that's dull.
