Cyrano de Bergerac and La Marseillaise were fascinating early sound shorts from France
16 July 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This rediscovered early color (hand-tinted) and sound (on disc) film from 1900 was put on the "Saved from the Flames" DVD collection. It depicts the duel between the title character and his rival with the actor who originated him in the play, Coquelin Aine, speaking in his native French language. Fascinating to watch though more interesting to see as historical than entertaining. Still, worth a look. P.S. This was followed by another early sound-on-disc musical short with singer M. Note singing "La Marseillaise" which, if you've seen Casablanca, you'd recognize as the French national anthem. That one was pretty entertaining.
