The attached article was published during a time when it was widely recognized that the silent film era had finally reached it's end and talking pictures were here to stay, the film critic for the "Sunday Express" (London) stepped up to the plate and heaped praise on the Hollywood film colony for having produced an abundance of sorely-needed comedies which allowed Europe to get through some difficult times:

"Hollywood's unfailing stream of fun and high spirits has kept the lamp of optimism burning in Europe...While German films were steeped in menacing morbidity and Russian films wallowed in psychopathic horrors; while Swedish film producers turned to Calvinistic frigidities, and Britain floundered in apologetic ineptitude"
