    Comments about Beau Brummel (1924) (MOD):

    I love this movie. It looks great, the modern score that's been added to it is gorgeous and magical, Barrymore, Astor, and the two lesser main female actresses (Carmel Myers and Irene Rich) are all stunning to look at, the story's never boring, is very entertaining, there's a lot of humour and wit (though this is as much a drama as it is amusing), and the 127 mins. playing duration moves briskly. Take note of that time as I've presented it accurately (127 mins.), whereas the Warner Archive site, and various other sites, mistakenly lists this movie as being only 80 mins. in length. I think this would be an excellent choice of movie to show to uninitiated Silent movie viewers, who don't believe they'd be interested in Silents; I think they'd be inclined to "take" to this one. This movie is so visually rich, the leads are so attractive, and the story is so involving and entertaining, that I think even people who believe they only can enjoy modern fare would be interested. Picture quality is excellent, with the exception of that there are several instances throughout the film of the picture "digitally dragging" a little bit, though not enough to be detrimental. I have a substantial and wonderful Silent movies DVD collection, and this movie is one of my very favourites in it. Buy it and enjoy!

    Comments about Beau Brummel (1924) (MOD):

    although the plot is stretched a little long at 2 hours, barrymore certainly makes the time past with an incredibly engaging performance, and a wallop of an ending. the rest is window dressing, but what window dressing it is!

    dvd quality is good: visuals and audio are very clear.

        Comments about Beau Brummel (1924) (MOD):

        A wonderful performance by John Barrymore as the title character anchors this lavish costume drama. Barrymore is riveting as Beau Brummel, from his rise from disappointed romantic youth to royal confidant, and fall into poverty and madness.
