[THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY] was original and daring as few films before it or since have dared to be. Russian artists who saw it and then THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI a few years later in Europe, tell me that if it had been shown abroad it would have surpassed CALIGARI's reputation as a heigthening of film art. It was undoubtedly the most important Russian film made previous to the February Revolution. (Jay Leyda: Kino, 1960)back to top
