The Sacred Flame 1929

An excellent stage play by Somerset Maugham that doesn't fare very well via Vitaphone. It's a pretty tragic story about the love of two brothers, one a war cripple, for the same girl. The film is wordy and slow, but has the benefit of an exceptionally brilliant cast, headed by Conrad Nagel, Lila Lee, Walter Byron and Pauline Frederick. All Talkie.

Photoplay February 1930
