"Jacques Feyder enjoyed a long, fruitful career as director, celebrated for such films as The Kiss (1929, starring Greta Garbo) and Knight Without Armor (1937, with Marlene Dietrich). Feyder cultivated his talents in the 1910s at the Gaumont Studios, where a carefully-curated stable of innovative directors were advancing the artistic finesse of the adolescent art form. In addition to Feyder's sophisticated comedies, this volume showcases a wide variety of other forms, impeccably executed: slapstick (The Long Arm of the Law), realism (The Barges), and experimental film (Feet and Hands). This disc also presents samples of the astounding technical achievements that Gaumont had mastered, years before they became standard practice, such as the Phonoscéne, a synchronized sound process presented to the public via the Chronomégaphone sound-on-disc system."--Container

« On August 17, 1908, history was made at the Théâtre du Gymnase in Paris, when the first pen-and-ink animated film by Emile Cohl had its premiere: Fantasmagoria. It was not the invention of animation. Others, including Emile Reynaud and Stuart Blackton, had experimented with certain techniques, but it was Cohl who dedicated himself to it and expanded the possibilities of the fledgling art form. He explored the effects of various forms of two-dimensional animation, pixillation, puppetry, and double-exposure, occasionally blending live action with animation, paving the way for other innovators--such as Winsor McCay and Walt Disney--who followed in his wake. But Cohl was more than a great technician. His films are infused with his unique personality. His tableaux vivants films, including Crowns and The Living Fan, reveal an affinity for Symbolist art. He was also a member of the 19th-century art rebels known as the Incoherents. As such, Cohl delighted in skewering all varieties of pomp and pretension, with a wit and irreverence that was a significant influence upon the Surrealist movement of the 1920s. »--
