Abel Gance: J'accuseAbel Gance: J'accuse

Flicker Alley

J'Accuse (1919) is a story set against the backdrop of World War I that is considered one of the most technically advanced films of the era and the first major pacifist film. Gance, who had served briefly in the military during World War I, decided to return to active service in 1919 in order to film real battle scenes to include in the project. The film was reedited and shortened for peacetime reissue in 1922, and has not been available since in its original form. The 2-disc DVD set provides the best possible and most complete restoration of the original 1919 edit of the film and features a new symphonic score composed and conducted by Robert Israel.

Boris Barnet: Miss MendBoris Barnet: Miss Mend

Flicker Alley

Widely regarded by the official Soviet press of the time as a prime example of shameless "Western-style" entertainment, Miss Mend was nevertheless hugely popular, becoming one of the most successful Soviet films of the 1920s. The action-packed adventure serial in three feature-length episodes features beautiful location photography, impressive stunt scenes; horse, car and boat chases, radio towers, jazz bands and even a spectacular train wreck, interspersed with visual references to German film classics like Nosferatu, Caligari and Dr. Mabuse. The film's heroine, Vivian Mend, is an elegant urban professional who earns her own living and raises a child without the help of any man. This new 2-disc DVD set was mastered in high definition from superb original 35mm elements and offers special bonus features by film historians Ana Olenina and Maxim Pozdorovkin.

ChicagoChicago

Flicker Alley

Like the musical Chicago that won the Best Picture Academy Award and five other Oscars in 2002, this original 1927 version descends from a 1926 hit Broadway play by Maurine Watkins. It's a terrifically entertaining mix of humor and melodrama as well as a pungent critique of trash journalism. Frank Urson signed Chicago as director, although it is substantially the work of Cecil B. DeMille and his A-list technical staff. (DeMille apparently judged it unseemly to take full credit for this cynical and secular story while his religious spectacle The King of Kings was still in theatres!) Chicago is silent filmmaking at its peak, with an outstanding score for this edition by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.

John Gilbert: Bardelys The Magnificent & Monte ChristoJohn Gilbert: Bardelys The Magnificent & Monte Christo

Flicker Alley

Today, more than 80% of silent cinema is considered lost forever. Some films were claimed by the flammable and unstable film stock of the day. Others were, once upon a time, thought to be worth less than the cost of keeping them. Yet, miraculously, unique copies of celebrated films previously thought lost are occasionally found and restored to delight a new generation. Bardelys the Magnificent joins Monte Cristo as two resurrected classics, both top-of-the-line productions starring John Gilbert, one of the most handsome, passionate and popular stars of the 1920s. Film historians Jeffrey Vance and Tony Maietta provide a full-length audio essay on Bardelys the Magnificent as well as an enclosed booklet and the thirty-minute documentary Rediscovering John Gilbert.

Les premiers pas du cinéma / The First Steps of CinemaLes premiers pas du cinéma / The First Steps of Cinema

FLICKER ALLEY

The story of the history of sound and color on the screen is told in two magnificent documentaries: A la recherche du son / In Search of Sound and Un rêve en couleurs / A Dream in Colors. It's a long and adventurous story whose origins go back way beyond the birth of cinema. We learn about films rented with a singer, films colored by handpainting, strange sound effect machines and bizarre color systems. Crazy inventors as well as uncanny personalities contributed in their own way to the history of film. Beside the two documentaries the 2-disc DVD offers 35 supplemental features with incredible and unknown images and sounds.
