The Goose Woman is blessed with one of the great unsung performances on film - an extraordinary piece of acting by Louise Dresser in the title role - a drunkard ex-opera singer who sees a chance to return to public attention by concocting a story about a nearby murder that inadvertently throws suspicion on her son. When in Sunset Boulevard Gloria Swanson uttered the immortal lines "They didn't need sound - they had faces then," she could have been referring to Ms Dresser. She displays the gamut of emotions without resorting to the histrionics that were so common in silent melodrama. The film predated the Oscars - one can imagine that Ms Dresser would have won the acting trophy hands down had it been awarded in 1925 (when the film was made). That the print is poor is more than compensated by her wonderful performance and the opportunity for film goers to see this lost classic at all.

I had only heard of the title of the "Goose Woman" in books about silent films. The film is wonderfully transfered. The story pretty well told by the great director Clarence brown. In spite of being a silent film from 1925, it remains a very exciting and poignant film and tale. The acting of Louise Dresser "a revelation" to me. Definitely a truly American film classic that deserves to be better known and seen. I give it a 5 stars for showing once more the incredible entertaining and seducing power of the silent cinema.

I think this is the first silent film I've watched. Very different art form than talkies and certainly worth the time invested watching it. The beginning was very grainy, but it improved shortly, so don't let that stop you. Melodramatic and overacting? Absolutely, but it is a gem if you want to enjoy an example of from the birth of film making.

Format: DVD
TELEVISTA's THE GOOSE WOMAN has a fine cast that includes a lady who worked opposite Rudolph Valentino and received one of the first-ever Best Actress Oscar nominations (Dresser), the brother of "America's Sweetheart" (Pickford) and a gal who was one of three famous acting sisters (Bennett). Directed by Clarence Brown from a story written by Rex Lease (he was a former Yukon Gold Rusher).

This photoplay was inspired by the Hall-Mills murder case, and like the "Pig Woman" of that famous trial, our titled lady is a publicity seeker who claims to be witness to a homicide that happened near her farm. Little does opera singer turned fowl tender Mary Holmes realize however that her son may be the killer!

Also recommeded from TELEVISTA:
THE SEA LION (1921) is the story of a captain who rescues two shipwreck survivors that were marooned for 16 years.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 viewer poll rating found at a film resource website.

(7.6) The Goose Woman (1925) - Louise Dresser/Jack Pickford/Constance Bennett/George Cooper/Gustav von Seyffertitz/George Nichols/Marc McDermott/Kate Price
