This is weird...and the leading man...that's even stranger!
This is a short film from the collection "Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film 1894-1941". What makes this one stand apart is the unknown actor in the lead. It's none other than a 17 year-old Charlton Heston--yes THE Charlton Heston in an art film! What's also interesting about this is that despite being a very short film, it has a cast larger than many full-length films!! As far as the story goes, it's mostly silent (with some intertitle cards and some nearly incomprehensible words here and there)--accompanied by music from Grieg's "Peer Gynt". And, frankly, I had no idea what was going on at the time. It's all very artsy and strange--with some freaky masks and costumes. It's the sort of thing you just have to see to believe. Certainly not an auspicious beginning for Heston--but also a fascinating curio to say the least!
