THE MAN WHO LAUGHS & BROADWAY

THE MAN WHO LAUGHS

(1928, Paul Leni) Conrad Veidt’s Gwynplaine, his face carved into a permanent grotesque grin in youth, is a travelling clown, loved by blind Mary Philbin — but who is he really? High expressionism from the Victor Hugo novel. Print courtesy Library of Congress. Silent with original musical soundtrack. Approx. 110 min. 35mm.
3:50, 9:55 

“No one who saw this movie as a child is likely to have forgotten it... Paul Leni had a true gift for macabre décor”, and the film’s ambitious mixture of morbidity and melodrama is very effective.”
– Pauline Kael

"One of the final treasures of German silent Expressionism... Creates an eerie netherworld fascination."
– Roger Ebert
