Mute Swan Makes Talky Silent
9 November 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Well-filmed but slow silent version of Molnar's THE SWAN is hampered by far too many title cards. Frances Howard, soon to be Mrs. Sam Goldwyn, makes a lovely Princess, Ricardo Cortez makes an excellent tutor and Adolphe Menjou makes, as always, a funny and aristocratic Prince, but it takes twenty minutes until the situation is set up and then everything is resolved by title card. Stick with the charming 1950s version with Grace Kelly, Louis Jourdain and Alec Guinness.
