Lon Chaney, 'the man of a thousand faces', gives his most famous performance in this first version of the oft-filmed tale. Based on Gaston Leroux's novel, Chaney stars as the 'Phantom', living in the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, who falls in love with the voice of a young opera singer. Infatuated, he kidnaps her, dragging her to the depths below where she will sing only for him.
Directed by Rupert Julian, this lavish 1925 production launched the Hollywood Gothic style - which would become the trademark of Universal horror films.
Original prints of the film were fully tinted, with some sequences in Technicolor, and a rooftop scene using a special process that enabled the Phantom's cloak to show red against the blue night sky. This Photoplay restoration carefully re-instates all these effects, and is accompanied by Carl Davis' celebrated score which draws heavily on Gounod's Faust, which is the opera being performed in the film.

"A true artist – My God, he had talent!" — Orson Welles

These versions of Blind Husbands, Foolish Wives and Queen Kelly are the most comprehensive to date. The recent restorations of these films are remarkable although numerous scratches remain (you can't work miracles on masters as damaged as Foolish Wives), but Queen Kelly is remarkably clean for a silent film. Through their innovative style and incredible visual originality, Blind Husbands, Foolish Wives and Queen Kelly are still surprisingly modern today as when they were created by the director of Greed. And each of these classics still carry an unique scent of scandal.

Nous voici ici en présence des versions de ces trois films (Maris aveugles, Folies de femmes et Queen Kelly) les plus complètes à ce jour. De plus, les restaurations effectuées dernièrement sont vraiment très réussies et si demeurent d'innombrables scratchs et rayures en tous genres (on ne peut pas faire de miracles non plus, surtout pour des masters aussi abîmées que celui de Folies de femmes), les copies ont retrouvées une belle jeunesse (surtout en comparaison de celles ignobles, et à bannir de toute urgence, proposées dans une collection de DVD vendue sur Cdiscount, Ciné Club Hollywood), celle de Queen Kelly étant même remarquablement propre pour un muet. Bref, pour ces films des années 20, je ne vois pas comment il aurait été possible de faire mieux ; et pour ne rien gâcher, la compression s'avère parfaitement bien gérée. Du très bon travail.

Weather Report must have been one of the most important Jazz-Rock groups from the 1970s, founded by his two major instrumentalists Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter 40 years ago. Late 1970s Weather Report was at the very height of its success and featured, except Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter, guitar legend Jaco Pastorius and drummer Peter Erskine. In September - October 1978 they toured along Europe and were scheduled for a dozen concerts; the live concert at the Stadthalle in Offenbach was recorded and is now available on a 2cd album and a DVD, which offers this complete concert. A must-have for all Weather Report fans. Keep Swinging loves to point you to this kind of historical concerts.

Rock / Pub Rock / New Wave / Singer-Songwriter

Career retrospective from Pub Rock’s angriest man Graham Parker, spread over 6 CDs with a DVD featuring a live set at the Brook Southampton from last year’s final tour with the Rumour…LTW’s Ian Canty looks at 40 years of Camberley’s very own Punk Soul brother….. It wasn’t very promising on the face of it. A resentful 25 year old garage pump attendant with a run through the 60s from Mod to Hippy behind him and a headful of dreams about Van Morrison and Dr Feelgood, matched up with what might have been the cream of the Pub Rock scene. But this was after all of their respective bands had singularly failed to make an impact, so together, in 1976, they stood at the doors of the Last Chance saloon. What wasn’t expected was that with their musical power allied to the petrol pump punk’s lyrical smarts and alarming stage presence, they would blow the doors off the hinges. Ladies and gentleman, I give you Graham Parker and the Rumour.
