I haven’t seen La Maison du Mystère, the 10-episode French serial. I’m afraid I never will. The odds of disappointment are too great: no movie could live up to these 1923 stills of the silent film.
As few interesting photos to peruse and enjoy on a Sunday afternoon (or whenever you should take the notion).
