DANSE MACABRE

by Dudley MURPHY
1922 / 35mm / tinted b&w / sound / 1S / 6' 49




“Murphy’s conception of a cinematic visual symphony is furthered with this short dance film conceived by dancer Adolph Bolm. Murphy makes original contributions with his depiction of the devil via superimposition and extensive use of animation to begin the film. The mood is enhanced by Francis Bruguière’s dramatic lighting effects.” - Bruce Posner
