BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT (King Vidor, 1926)
Saturday, July 11
Noon - BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT (West Coast Premiere)
Directed by King Vidor (USA, 1926)
Cast: John Gilbert, Eleanor Boardman, Roy D'Arcy

King Vidor's swashbuckling romance was lost to the ages until the discovery of nitrate materials in a French vault. Superbly restored digitally, the film confirms the scope of John Gilbert's bountiful talents. As a wryly comic and athletic ladies man, Gilbert captivates the lovely Eleanor Boardman (and the audience). The story, set in the court of Louis XIII, hinges on mistaken identity, political intrigue, and personal perfidy, building to a rousing (and oh-so-satisfying) denouement!

Digitally Restored by Lobster Films and screened digitally. Feature runs approximately 90 minutes.

Preceded by short film THEY WOULD ELOPE (Biograph, 1909)
