  1. A still from Behind That Curtain (1929)

    Behind That Curtain 1929

    D+: 2 stars (out of 5)

    Directed by Irving Cummings. Starring Warner Baxter, Lois Moran, Gilbert Emery, and Claude King.

    Boris Karloff’s first talkie. His contribution comes via a bit part as lead Warner Baxter’s vaguely Arabian manservant. Though billed as a mystery, the film plays as a melodrama. Baxter and Lois Moran play would-be lovers kept apart by Moran’s murderous, philandering husband and the script’s insistence that Moran behave like an impetuous child.
