While Paris Sleeps plus His Woman

While Paris Sleeps
“An early talkie that in terms of plot material and relative sparseness of dialogue plays more like a rich silent melodrama. Its real star is the art director, William Darling, who on a very small budget evokes a colorful impression of Paris and its underworld. Pictorially it's a stunning film, and its complex plot (in which a condemned man escapes to Paris to see his daughter, and ends up sacrificing himself to her) is told with both speed and economy in the space of an hour.” --W.K. Everson
