The film version of "The Lady" is really well done, and Miss Talmadge gives one of the finest performances of her screen career.

The production is elaborate and well handled, while Miss [Norma] Talmadge does wonders with the title role.

August 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Miss [Norma] Talmadge is seen in what is her finest characterization since her appearance in "Secrets".

August 19, 2020 | Full Review…

This picture proves [Norma Talmadge] is one of the greatest emotional actresses on the screen today.

August 19, 2020 | Full Review…

A well-knit, fascinating drama.

August 19, 2020 | Full Review…

In [Norma Talmadge's] new piece, The Lady, she has occasional moments of emotional power, and some of the film itself has charm, when it recaptures so quaintly the atmosphere of the long gone music-halls. But it is not a good film.
