Summary The early Hollywood gem, Lonesome, is the creation of a little-known, but audacious and one-of-a-kind auteur, Paul Fejos, who bridged the gap between the silent and sound eras. Fejos pulled out all the stops for his lovely New York symphony set in antic Coney Island during the Fourth of July weekend, employing color tinting, superimposition effects, experimental editing, and a roving camera, plus three dialogue scenes, added because of the craze for talkies.
De tovl klinger: A vengeful magician becomes smitten with his stage assistant, Julie.
Broadway: A tale of gangsters and hoofers in a New York nightclub.
