Edwin Schallert Los Angeles Times The film's all compelling beauty, its lavishness, the refinement of its art will draw forth the appreciation of the discerning. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Joshua Lowe Variety The Capulet festivities in the first act make a well-handled bit of mass, with a group of bare-legged dancers to help out the spectacle and the street brawls were extremely picturesque. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Age Staff The Age (Australia) The balcony scene is one of the gems of the performance. The street scenes of Venora are faithfully represented, and the interiors in Juliet's home are especially good. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Harriette Underhill New York Tribune As a picture it was interesting, and would have furnished a splendid entertainment if one had never heard of Shakespeare. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Hanford C. Judson Moving Picture World If it doesn't reach those heights of beauty that give to the critic who has seen great presentations of the richly magnificent play, it Is beautiful enough to inspire many and give delight to them. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review George W. Graves Motography The climax was handled with credit to everyone concerned, and an audience cannot fail to feel the intense pathos which is the core of this tragedy. It is evident that time, money and skill were factors in the making of this [film]. Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
