(Rex Ingram, US 1923, 124 min., 35mm)

Silent Tuesdays. Ramon Novarro in his first important starring role leaps, deceives, and swashbuckles for justice (and beautiful Alice Terry) during the French Revolution in Rex Ingram’s thrilling and visually spectacular adaptation of Rafael Sabatini’s renowned adventure classic. Ingram fills the screen with movement and memorable imagery, with everything captured in John Seitz’s masterful camerawork. The Eastman House print is universally considered the best extant version of this visual feast. Live musical accompaniment by Philip C. Carli.
