GETTING AWAY from comedy roles, Adolphe Menjou demonstrates his right to consideration as a serious actor in Paramount's ver of Michael Arlen's "The Ace of Cads." To those who have regarded him purely as a light comedian, his touches of pathos come as a surprise. He handles an impossible role so well as to make a desire to see him in a storyline in which he will have a true chance. As in his first excursion into serious work, he is hampered by the hero he gotta portray. That he makes Maturin so interesting is a private triumph, for he seems to be hampered both by the role and the direction.This applies in even greater degree to Norman Trevor as the interfering old Colonel. The fussiness of the military martinet has been stressed until the role is all out of proportion.Alice Joyce, everytime gracious and patrician, has a part more to her liking, and in both periods of the enjoy looks the part, for the still can recommend youth while being even better in the flower of maturity.The acting average is far above the plot level, for the storyline is an impossible one, impossibly told. Arlen does not profit by transfer to the screen largely because of his choice of characters. Healthy interest cannot be derived from unwholesome people, and his stories lack true screen appeal. They take too much explaining to be realized in action only. The scenarist has done the greatest he could, but the effect is not above the tool average, though the Arlen name could support to sell. - Review from Moving Picture World, October 30, 1926.
