The late Mathias Pascal( Visual )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flicker Alley is proud to present this edition of The late Mathias Pascal. It is remarkably cast with some of the great actors of that era: Ivan Mosjoukine, (as Mathias Pascal), Michel Simon, Lois Moran, Pierre Batcheff and Marcelle Pradot. The film also boasts famous stylized sets designed by Alberto Cavalcanti and Lazare Meerson, seen here to best advantage in a stunning tinted and toned print restored by the Cinèmatheque Française, and accompanied by a beautiful large-orchestra score composed and conducted by Timothy Brock. Mathias, an eccentric dreamer, is trapped in the undertakings of daily life as he suffers his days in a loveless marriage, a dead end job and tyrannized by his ungrateful mother-in-law. Grief-stricken by the death of his mother and infant daughter, Mathias flees to Monte Carlo, where a run of luck at roulette wins him a fortune. After his death is falsely reported, Mathias leaps at the chance of a second and adventurous life in Rome. Both tragedy and comedy, The late Mathias Pascal explores the struggles and possibilities of a man in search of happiness in L'Herbier's most celebrated film. Critic David Melville wrote The white Russian exile Ivan Mosjoukine was arguably the greatest male star of the silent screen. Imagine an actor who combined the matinée idol looks of John Barrymore with the smoldering sexual magnetism of Valentino, the deft physical comedy of Chaplin with the dark Gothic creepiness of Lon Chaney. It sounds impossible, of course - unless you've seen Mosjoukine in action. This is a co-production of L'Herbier's Cinegraphic company, and Alexandre Kamenka's Films Albatros, the Parisian home of the émigré Russian screen colony and maker of many of the most prestigious films of the decade. L'Herbier at this time was among cinema's leading avant-garde directors, the equal of Fritz Lang, Abel Gance and Erich von Stroheim, and The Late Mathias Pascal is considered one of his best films, full of picturesque tricks, spiritual angles, and dream sequences as it passes from rural chamber-film to burlesque fantasy, with an incursion into expressionist comedy of manners. The Late Mathias Pascal is a film of great distinction and virtuoso style, adapted and directed by Marcel l'Herbier from a novel by Luigi Pirandello. The biggest French fantasy film of the 1920s, this co-production of Cinegraphic and Films Albatros, is considered one of L'Herbier's best films, full of picturesque tricks, spiritual angles, and dream sequences as it passes from rural chamber-film to burlesque fantasy, with an incursion into expressionist comedy of manners

A simple farmer is seduced by an alluring city woman; to be with her he plans to drown his wife. The wife suspects nothing when her husband suggests an outing, but when they set off across the lake, she grows suspicious. He prepares to throw her overboard, but she pleads for mercy, and he comes to his senses. He rows frantically for shore, but when the boat reaches land, she flees. He follows, begging her not to be afraid. Slowly, she begins to recover. They wander into a church where a wedding is taking place. Breaking down, the husband begins to repeat the wedding vows, finally convincing his wife that she has nothing to fear. On their way back home across the lake, a sudden storm arises. The man remembers the bundles of reeds he placed in the boat to save himself, and ties them around his wife. The boat capsizes. Washing up on shore, the unconscious man is brought home, but his wife is nowhere to be found, and it appears that she has died. The man is grief-stricken. The other woman comes to his house, assuming their plan has succeeded. Enraged, the man begins to strangle her, but the word comes that his wife has been found. He releases the woman and runs to his wife, kneeling by her bed as she slowly opens her eyes.
