Michel Strogoff

Here's the scene from Michel Strogoff I was describing - I think it's my favourite in the whole movie. As I said before, just watch Mosjoukine's hands - so beautiful and expressive. How I wish this movie could get the gold-standard restoration treatment of 'Metropolis' and 'M'! Maybe some day. It's odd that the French were the first to start seriously restoring silent movies, but the Germans have taken over first place completely. I don't know so much about American silent movies, though I expect a lot of good work is going on in the U.S. too.
