Bardelys the magnificent( Visual )

2 editions published between 1926 and 2009 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bardelys the Magnificent (1926) is based upon the novel by Rafael Subteens and directed by King Vigor, who just one year before had directed John Gilbert in the smash hit The Big Parade. In France 'in an age of light loves and lively scandals, ' the Marquis doe Bardelys (Gilbert), casual womanizer and accomplished swashbuckler, is entranced by doe Laved an (Eleanor Board man); and against a background of knavery and intrigue, he sets out to woo and win her. Lavishly mounted and superbly directed with spectacular action scenes, Bardelys is a hugely entertaining action romance given an A-plus MGM production. The sole surviving print was found in France in 2006; the English titles are restored according to the original script. A gap in the recovered footage is bridged with stills, titles, and footage from the original trailer so the story is complete; the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra provides a lovely score of period photo play music

The hunchback of Notre Dame by Wallace Worsley( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flicker Alley, in association with the Blackhawk Films Collection®, is proud to present The Hunchback of Notre Dame, starring Lon Chaney as Quasimodo, looking as if he had just stepped out from the original illustrations of Victor Hugo’s novel. Hunchback is a huge production: the sets depicting 15th-century Paris covered nineteen acres of Universal Pictures’ back lot and included the façade of Notre Dame Cathedral. Filming took six months and the climactic sequence employed two thousand extras, but it’s Lon Chaney’s performance that makes the character unforgettable. The Hunchback of Notre Dame premiered at New York’s Astor Theatre on September 2, 1923. The success of the film was immediate; it made Carl Laemmle and Universal Pictures a fortune, and turned Lon Chaney into a screen legend. This edition is mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative. (The film apparently does not survive in 35mm). Visible wear in the source material is diminished with a moderate amount of digital restoration. It is pictorially much better than earlier video editions and represents the best condition in which this landmark film survives today. A new symphonic score arranged by Donald Hunsberger was recorded in the Czech Republic by full orchestra conducted by Robert Israel.This edition produced by David Shepard and Serge Bromberg; Special Contents Copyright 1991, 1996, 2007, 2014 by Film Preservation Associates, Inc.
