Original 1923 Film Review

Review from Moving Picture World - April 14, 1923 "The Woman of Bronze"

Henry Kistaemaecher's emotional drama has been effectively screened by Metro with Clara Kimball Young in the stellar part. While the film version may seem more stereotyped than the stage play, it is nevertheless stirring. It successfully sustains interest to the climax, an intensely dramatic moment.

In projecting Clara Kimball Young's personality, the production weakens somewhat in other respects. The effect is that an unnecessary burden has been placed on her. Subordinate members of the cast who really have important roles are in-artistically subdued. The result is that some of the big emotional scenes--and there are many--are narrowed to make her more striking. This, in addition to her tendency to overact, has a detrimental, though by no means entirely destructive effect upon the drama. Much of her performance is pleasing. At times she seems to have vividly realized the magnificent character of Vivian Hunt.

The picture should have a strong appeal for women. The story of the artist who forgets his wife in an infatuation for his model, and after continued failure and unhappiness, wants his wife back again, is one that will win the ardent sympathy of most women patrons. Attractive studio sets and a pleasing scenic equipment generally is another favorable angle. Lloyd Whitlock is a good type, physically, for the artist. John Bowers' enthusiastic ability shines through an obscured pat and Katherine McGuire makes Sylvia Morton, the model, seem as insubstantial as she really was.

Where heavy emotional dramas of married life draw, "The Woman of Bronze" should be a distinct success.

Story: Leonard Hunt, furious because of his inability to work and frenzied by his infatuation for Sylvia, his model, smashes his giant Victory memorial statue, which mocks him in its soullessness. Later, he sees the soul that he missed in the face of his wife. But her love has been chilled by his illicit affair. The extraordinary power with which she meets this situation brings a stirring climax.

Tragically, The Woman of Bronze now remains a lost silent film.
