"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.

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.

Resisting the character-driven narrative adhered to by the rest of the world's filmmakers, Victor Turin formulated a grand, elemental drama centered around the struggle for survival in Asia, from the arid plains of Turkestan to the icy Siberian mountains.

This is a good collection of piano-accompanied vocals sporting bluesmen who worked the lumber camps and oil fields of rural Texas, as well as the red-light districts of cities like Galveston and Houston. Big Boy Knox shows a strong city influence in his decorative right-hand work, as does Robert Cooper, whose playing points to the influence of Fats Waller. Joe Pullem is on board with his hit, "Black Gal," which is perhaps overstated by three takes and a variation. The vocals are good, however, and the piano playing is uniformly excellent. Stylistically, this music falls somewhere between ragtime, blues, and vaudeville.

Conrad Nagel, representing the Hollywood movie community, and Jack Benny, representing the Broadway stage community, act as the interlocutors of a musical comedy revue. A plethora of chorus boys and girls are featured front and center in some of the song and dance numbers, and provide back-up to some other acts. But the revue primarily is a vehicle to highlight a cavalcade of Hollywood movie and Broadway stage stars. One early running gag has both Nagel and Benny playing straight man to Cliff Edwards, who just wants a nice introduction to his act. Edwards would return later to be featured along with the Brox Sisters in one of the highlights of the second act, a production number around the song "Singin' in Rain", complete with rain soaked stage. A reprise of the song with the entire cast acts as the revue's finale.

Lively and bustling with sounds, movie screenings in Japan during the silent film era were anything but silent. Silent films in Japan were rarely silent. Screenings were accompanied by live music performed by bands of musicians and narration by katsudo benshi or motion picture narrators. Movie theaters in Japan were home to exciting live performances where the trinity of images, music and narrating conjured up the magic of cinema. The Talking Silents series from Digital Meme recreates this unique Japanese screening format.

In 1928, after years of struggles within the studio system, Erich von Stroheim found the opportunity to create his crowning achievement: a storybook romance of intoxicating beauty, counterbalanced with a frightfully grim tale of moral corruption. Gloria Swanson stars as an innocent convent girl who falls under the spell of a handsome prince (Walter Byron) on the eve of his marriage to a diabolical queen (Seena Owen).
