Lonesome( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early Hollywood gem, Lonesome, is the creation of a little-known, but audacious and one-of-a-kind auteur, Paul Fejos, who bridged the gap between the silent and sound eras. Fejos pulled out all the stops for his lovely New York symphony set in antic Coney Island during the Fourth of July weekend, employing color tinting, superimposition effects, experimental editing, and a roving camera, plus three dialogue scenes, added because of the craze for talkies
The man who laughs by Paul Leni( Visual )

27 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Victor Hugo's grotesque fable set in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, of an orphan, heir to an earldom, rendered a circus freak in childhood when his mouth is mutilated into a hideous and permanent grin. The stark opening scenes have a Germanic look with oppressive low-ceilinged sets. The film portrays the social order in vaguely populist terms. The nobility are corrupt, scheming, promiscuous, cruel and selfish, the poor are picturesquely squalid, grotesque and comical. But the main focus is on the fate of the individual not social inequality. Leni plays the scenes with the aristocracy languidly and mockingly. Low life scenes contrast in their vigour and movement. Veidt plays the pain and suffering in his eyes against the malevolence of his perpetual grin
