"Warren S. Doremus has evinced fresh imagination in The Call of the Lonely Wood, a dramatic story of a venture into the unknown by a young man who has only a sketchy map to guide him. He fails of his goal on the first attempt, but he sets out once more after recovery from exposure and exhaustion. The hurdles he overcomes and the excitement of his discovery of each of the three triangles that serve as clews are convincingly pictured and supplemented by a well written narrative that is dramatically presented. Interesting dissolve effects support the mysterious quality of the film's theme, and suspense is maintained by excellent cutting and editing. A well rounded musical score was arranged by Arthur Brown, and Robert Carabell played the main role with competence." Movie Makers, Dec. 1944, 494-495.

"Rainbow Fantasy, in the words of Charles C. Hammack, is "an attempt to produce — not a conventional travelog — but more a story of adventure, a hiking adventure to what is probably one of the least visited of our national monuments, Rainbow Bridge, in southeastern Utah." In achieving this goal, Mr. Hammack has been largely and creditably successful. For him and his young wife, Rainbow Bridge takes on the aura of a lost horizon, a Shangri La protected from the outside world by the blistering desert heat and the brutal desert rocks. He brings this overtone of feeling to his film, both through his imaginative camera treatment of the subject and the intentionally dramatic acting of the two travelers. Mr. Hammack's is a new name in Ten Best competition, but it is one which we believe will be heard again."Movie Makers, Dec. 1943, 478.

"Amateur filmmaker and cinema historian H.A.V. Bulleid employs rapid montage and a sense of foreboding in this rural tragedy set in the Welsh countryside. On farmland in rural Wales, where crumbling farm buildings reflect the rural desolation, a young lady spends her holidays wandering the fells with her ever reliable dog. When she meets a young farmhand, a romance develops. But as the girl grows closer to the young man, she pays less attention to her dog. And when the dog is left at the farmhouse as the pair goes rock-climbing, tragedy ensues. Sensing a problem, the dog searches the fells as day turns to night. But will he find his master? And will the young lovers survive?" (EAFA Database)
