Two peasant children, Mytyl and Tyltyl, are led by Berylune, a fairy, to search for the Blue Bird of Happiness. Berylune gives Tyltyl a cap with a diamond setting, and when Tyltyl turns the diamond, the children become aware of and conversant with the souls of a Dog and Cat, as well as of Fire, Water, Bread, Light, and other presumably inanimate things. The troupe thus sets off to find the elusive Blue Bird of Happiness. Written by

Director Maurice Tourneur
grew up in France and worked at the famed film company Éclair. Éclair was interested in expanding its market in the US. So, in 1914, since Tourneur spoke fluent English, it asked him to move to manage its studio in Fort Lee, NJ. Shortly after moving to Fort Lee he began working for other studios--including Paramount Pictures, which released this picture. See more
