The affairs of Anatol ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1921 and 2000 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This tale about a hypocritical New York sophisticate, Anatol De Witt Spencer, was freely adapted from Schnitzler's play. His marriage is tested by his 'philandering', culminating in his encounter with Satan Synne, 'the world's wickedest woman', which only serves to confirm Anatol's inability to face the truth about himself and 'the ways of women'. The front-on compositions, colour tinted and filmed in Art Nouveau-designed sets are, in the words of Charles Higham, 'like a series of Beardsley illustrations to Oscar Wilde'

The woman God forgot ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1917 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
At the time of Cortez's encounter with the Aztec emperor Montezuma, the emperor's daughter, Tecza, falls in love with a Spanish captain. To save him from death at the altar of the war god she opens the city gates to the Spanish forces. Inspired by Rider Haggard's novel, Montezuma's Daughter, De Mille's historical spectacle (it was the second of many), with its massive set and set pieces such as the battle on the pyramids, transposed onto film the scale of the pageantry movement in early 20th century America. The Variety reviewer of the time noted that the white skin of his star Geraldine Farrar, generously displayed by De Mille, stands out against the 'bronze hue' of her fellow Aztecs. De Mille's favourite male actor of the time, Theodore Kosloff, brings his striking presence to the role of an imperial Aztec warrior.
