Not rated
Year Released:

With a fresh restoration from Lobster Films and the world premiere of a new Alloy Orchestra score, the fast-paced La galerie des monstres comes to life for the first time in several decades. The film follows a young couple from a small town who fall in love and run away to join the circus. The tyrannical owner and ringmaster threatens the couple’s lives when the boss’ unwanted advances on the wife are refused. But, the circus is ‘a family’ and an ensemble of fascinating characters come to their aide. Jaque Catelain, popular as an actor at that time, was convinced to direct and star in the film by influential French director Marcel L’Herbier. Silent film with English intertitles.
