500    Title from title frames. 
518    Originally produced by Flicker Alley in 1925. 
520    Flicker Alley is proud to present this edition of The late
       Mathias Pascal. It is remarkably cast with some of the 
       great actors of that era: Ivan Mosjoukine, (as Mathias 
       Pascal), Michel Simon, Lois Moran, Pierre Batcheff and 
       Marcelle Pradot. The film also boasts famous stylized sets
       designed by Alberto Cavalcanti and Lazare Meerson, seen 
       here to best advantage in a stunning tinted and toned 
       print restored by the Cinèmatheque Française, and 
       accompanied by a beautiful large-orchestra score composed 
       and conducted by Timothy Brock. Mathias, an eccentric 
       dreamer, is trapped in the undertakings of daily life as 
       he suffers his days in a loveless marriage, a dead end job
       and tyrannized by his ungrateful mother-in-law. Grief-
       stricken by the death of his mother and infant daughter, 
       Mathias flees to Monte Carlo, where a run of luck at 
       roulette wins him a fortune. After his death is falsely 
       reported, Mathias leaps at the chance of a second and 
       adventurous life in Rome. Both tragedy and comedy, The 
       late Mathias Pascal explores the struggles and 
       possibilities of a man in search of happiness in 
       L'Herbier's most celebrated film. Critic David Melville 
       wrote The white Russian exile Ivan Mosjoukine was arguably
       the greatest male star of the silent screen. Imagine an 
       actor who combined the matinée idol looks of John 
       Barrymore with the smoldering sexual magnetism of 
       Valentino, the deft physical comedy of Chaplin with the 
       dark Gothic creepiness of Lon Chaney. It sounds impossible,
       of course - unless you've seen Mosjoukine in action. This 
       is a co-production of L'Herbier's Cinegraphic company, and
       Alexandre Kamenka's Films Albatros, the Parisian home of 
       the émigré Russian screen colony and maker of many of the 
       most prestigious films of the decade. L'Herbier at this 
       time was among cinema's leading avant-garde directors, the
       equal of Fritz Lang, Abel Gance and Erich von Stroheim, 
       and The Late Mathias Pascal is considered one of his best 
       films, full of picturesque tricks, spiritual angles, and 
       dream sequences as it passes from rural chamber-film to 
       burlesque fantasy, with an incursion into expressionist 
       comedy of manners. The Late Mathias Pascal is a film of 
       great distinction and virtuoso style, adapted and directed
       by Marcel l'Herbier from a novel by Luigi Pirandello. The 
       biggest French fantasy film of the 1920s, this co-
       production of Cinegraphic and Films Albatros, is 
       considered one of L'Herbier's best films, full of 
       picturesque tricks, spiritual angles, and dream sequences 
       as it passes from rural chamber-film to burlesque fantasy,
       with an incursion into expressionist comedy of manners.
