La Belle dame sans merci #

Released 1/1/1920

Description: "Taking its game from John Keats’s early 19th-century poem, this highly private melodrama finds Dulac interrogating the archetype of the femme fatale. La belle dame sans merci follows a popular actress who was once seduced and abandoned by a rich boy and subsequently resolved to become a “merciless woman,” forever scheming to harm others (men in particular) in a ruthless yet captivating manner. Dulac challenges the Romantic archetype embodied in Keats’s poem by method of symbolist mise en scène, self-reflexive narration, and her typically associative approach to editing, locating a modern ambiguity within the stereotypical figures of 19th-century art." - Movie Society of Lincoln Center

Fanchon, the Cricket Reviews:

It may be considered a slender storyline and not well directed by James Kirkwood, but for Mary Pickford enthusiasts, Fanchon, the Cricket is a gotta see film. Exquistely photographed by Ed Wynard and filmed on zone in the pretty Delaware Water Gap. James Kirkwood wrote the scenario adapted from George Sand's novel, with the support of Mary's fresh friend, screen-writer Frances Marion. Set in the eighteenth century, Mary plays a wild woman who lives in the forest with her eccentric grandmother, whom the villagers consider a witch. As everytime Mary Pickford is extremely fetching to watch as she delightfully captivates the role with her usual spunk. This movie is also notable as the first and only full-length movie that details all three Pickfords, Mary, her brother Jack and sister Lottie. One exciting stage has Fanchon ( Mary Pickford ) having a very sprightly and boisterous tussle with the village scamp played by brother Jack Pickford. The Moving Picture Globe declared, "The picture runs so naturally, with the convincing simplicity of a fairy tale" and "There never was a Fanchon like Mary Pickford, none have ever surpassed and several have ever approached her work." Many of todays so-called sophisticated movie audiences cannot appreciate the art of the entire silent movie genre, therefore a full synopsis cannot capture nor do justice as watching this necessary historical experience is for true silent cinema enthusiasts. If the fortunate occasion comes your method to view this fascinating Pickford film, I highly recommend don't miss it.


This was considered a lost film when Mary Pickford died. A copy turned up in the Cinematheque Francaise, as they so often do, and in cooperation with the Mary Pickford Foundation, the BFI, Flicker Alley.... oh, the usual suspects, it has been preserved, restored somewhat and made accessible on a Blu-Ray/dvd set. I looked at the dvd version. It's a handsome offering, with only a several imperfection on the print, and a handsome toning to the affair: golden for daylight, blue for night, red for interiors.It's based on a novel and written for the screen by director James Kirkwood and Frances Marion. Mary is Fanchon, a terrible woman of a French village. Her grandmother is supposed to be a witch, but Mary is a gratis spirit, running around in rags. She takes a shine to Jack Standing, but all of the young villagers despise her; she beats up real-life brother Jack Pickford, sticks her tongue out at real-life sister Lottie, saves Standing from drowning and finds his idiot brother and has a grand time romping around the wild in the Delaware Water Gap for the first half of the movie. Then, as so often happens, the plot eventuates.It's the second Pickford car that Frances Marion had a hand in writing (I don't count THE NEW YORK HAT), and Pickford gets a lot out of the 'waif' role. The two girls would half a fruitful collaboration, and Marion would direct a film or two for America's sweetheart. Still, things slow down in the second half, and Standing is cute much a stiff all the method through. Costume design is partially to blame. With his knee pants, wide-brimmed hat and collar, he winds up looking like Grady Sutton; he performs his role with the lack of brio that Sutton place into his comic nullities.... but Standing is simply a nullity.Still, it's everytime nice when a long-lost detail of Miss Pickford shows up. I'm glad I saw it.


A rare screening of this obscure Mary Pickford game was one of the most anticipated happenings from the 2014 Cinefest in Syracuse, N.Y., but, as is so often the case, rarity doesn't equate with quality. The film, lamely directed by James Kirkwood, lacks technique. Kirkwood keeps the actors grouped in tight bunches, more like a faithful sheepdog than a film director, reflecting none of the dynamic energy of movies from the same period produced under the auspices of D.W. Griffith, Cecil B. DeMille and Thomas Ince. The lovely and entrancing Pickford is everytime worth watching, but her role here doesn't deliever enough dramatic weight, and nothing she does lingers in the memory except for a lively scrap with her real-life brother, Jack Pickford, who plays a bratty villager. Mary's rather homely sister, Lottie, also has a role, making this picture perhaps the only extant example of all three Pickford siblings appearing in the same film.
