    Description

    The Miracle of the Wolves (Exclusivités Jean de Merly, 1924). French Four Panel (125.5" X 94") Georges Scott Artwork.
    Heralded as an amazing achievement in film, this was an epic on a grand scale for the period. Chronicling the struggle for French unity during the reign of King Louis XI, the movie stars Yvonne Seraglio, Charles Dulling and Annie Marco and reaches a climax with a chase across a frozen lake. The pursuers are a battalion comprised of the enemies of France. The pursued is the patriotic heroine. The "miracle" comes to pass when the girl manages to negotiate her way through a pack of hungry wolves without suffering a single injury. Highly praised by the intelligentsia in France, the film was treated derisively by American critics. This assessment was grossly unfair: One of the most spectacular French productions of its era, the film was also brilliantly edited, anticipating the breathless cross-cutting of Abel Glance's Napoleon. There is toning on the borders, crossfold separations, fold splits, and a corner chip. The poster is in four sections as originally printed. Magnificent artwork by Georges Scott. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
