    Description

    Le Calvaire (Gaumont, 1914). Italian 4 - Fogli (56.5" X 82.75").
    The title translates to The Calvary and was a short subject starring Musidora. This was one of her earliest films and one that would propel her image as a major actress and force in the early French cinema. In the year after this film, she would appear in one of France's most popular series, the Les Vampire films as Irma Vep (an anagram for Vampire). She would go on to become one of the first and most important women in the film industry, as she would not only act, but also write and direct (or co-direct) her films. Touchup has been applied to the folds with no other signs of wear. Very Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
