Photoplay (Jun/1921) - The Great Day




THE GREAT DAY — British Paramount

Another English picture — but this time directed by an American, Hugh Ford. Mr. Ford was almost hopelessly handicapped by an insincere story; he doubtless did the best he could with the material he had to work with. This is the first product of the Famous Players British studios, and a distinct disappointment. Except for some charming country scenes, and several shots of the impressive Alps — the real Alps — there is nothing in it to hold the interest. Arthur Bourchier is probably a good actor but he had little opportunity to prove it.
