Early Lugosi

Daughter of the Night (1920)

** (out of 4)

The earliest surviving Bela Lugosi film has him playing a French millionaire who falls in love with a Russian singer and soon joins her in an underground revolution. I'm not sure how compelte this film is but it never really makes a bit of sense and some of this is just due to over-dramatic situations and a real lack of development. The film tries to speak highly of Russian people and to show they're aren't animals yet that's exactly what they're shown as in the unbelievable ending. This was my first time seeing Lugosi in a silent film and I really wasn't too impressed after hearing some stories of him being a "great actor" in his early days. He's way too stiff in the film, stiff like his later performances but at least there you had his voice to carry some weight. That stiffness really doesn't work too well in a silent film but he's far from the worst thing here.
