  • The Mark of Zorro (1920) starring Douglas Fairbanks
    "He plays silly tricks as a languid gentleman and vicious ones as an outlaw." -Louis Reeves Harrison, Moving Picture World

  • The Clinging Vine (1926) starring Leatrice Joy
    Joy "tries a type that is strange to her, appearing first as a thoroughly masculine, unattrative woman, but as the title suggests, she doesn't stay that way." -Picture-Play Magazine


  • The Michigan Kid (1928) starring Conrad Nagel
    It "is not a profound film or masterpiece--it's a terrific piece of meat-and-potatoes entertainment, a genre assignment blessedly better than it needed to be." -Revelator_, IMDB


  • Welcome Home (1935) starring James Dunn, Arline Judge, Raymond Walburn and Rosina Lawrence American Cinematographer praised the look of the film, writing, "Arthur Miller's camera work is eighteen carat all the way."

  • The Great Hotel Murder (1935) starring Edmund Lowe, Victor McLaglen, Rosemary Ames & Mary Carlisle
    Movie Classic magazine said, "It wouldn't be fair to tell you how they do the job, so take our word for the fact that if you like thrillers, this is one you won't want to miss."


  • The Mikado (1939) starring Kenny Baker
    "Baker may not be the ideal Nanki- Poo, but this color film of Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta is still worthwhile, with the marvelous G&S songs intact." -Leonard Maltin


  • On the Spot (1940) starring Frankie Darro and Mantan Moreland See Mary Kornman of Our Gang fame in her final screen appearance.

  • Parole Fixer (1940) starring William Henry, Anthony Quinn and Virginia Dale Box Office Digest printed the following in their February 1940 issue: "A good screenplay carries us through fact and fancy of the methods of Hoover's Federal Bureau of Investigation. A capable cast tells the story to us, with William Henry coming off with the honors." 

  • Pursued (1947) starring Robert Mitchem & Teresa Wright
    Photoplay magazine reported there was tension on the set. Producer/screenwriter Niven Busch cut one of his wife Wright's scenes, she cried, and the next day it was put back into the shooting schedule. 


  • Stella (1950) starring Ann Sheridan & Victor Mature 
    20th Century-Fox Dynamo wrote, "Stella develops a succession of mirthful incidents involving one one of the wackiest families yet brought to the screen."


  • Main Street to Broadway (1953) with an all-star cast
    "What makes MStB more than a showcase of big names is the artful way in which the plot is interlaced with celebrities acting as themselves." -Florence Epstein, Modern Screen 


  • Black Tuesday (1954) starring Edward G. Robinson
    "Director of photography Stanley Cortez, A.S.C. used Tri-X in photographing 98 percent of the Leonard Goldstein production Black Tuesday marking the first time this film has been used in photographing a major Hollywood feature." -American Cinematographe
