The blue bird : Maeterlinck's world famous masterpiece( Visual )

5 editions published between 1918 and 2005 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fantasy was adapted from Maeterlinck's symbolist drama in which two children set out to look for the blue bird of happiness. Tourneur's cinema was based more on pictoralism than editing, a sophisticated blend of the theatrical and the cinematic. The creation of a subjective world through theatrical design is comparable to Caligari (1919). However Tourneur's film is impressionistic in design and use of effects (painted sets are combined with location settings) while Caligari is claustraphobic in its committment to expressionistically painted sets
