Gaumont Treasures, 1897-1913
Disc 2, Louis FeuilladeDVD - 2009
This collection looks at pioneering French filmmakers from the Gaumont studio, with extensive examples of their work. Best remembered today for his espionage serials Les Vampires and Fantômas, Louis Feuillade had a more varied and profound influence upon French cinema than many of his followers realize. For more than a decade, he was the artistic director at Gaumont, encouraging the rise of such filmmakers as Abel Gance and Léonce Perret. This collection of films offers a wider view of Feuillade's directorial efforts -- but, admittedly, it is only a small portion of the nearly 800 films he is believed to have directed.
