Gaumont treasures, 1897-1913( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection looks at pioneering French filmmakers from the Gaumont studio, with extensive examples of their work. Until now, the films of Léonce Perret have been virtually unseen in the United States, yet he was a hugely influential figure in the growth of the French film industry. As an actor, he appeared in more than 100 films from 1909 to 1916, including the long-running series of "Léonce" comedies. But his greater contribution was as a director who set the standard to which other French filmmakers aspired. His films had a technical mastery and aesthetic grace that allowed them to reveal subtleties of character and meaning
