WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL BY
“Food-Induced Nightmare”

by Victor FLEMING
1919 / 35mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 8' 40

“Inspired by Dream of a Rarebit Fiend (1906), this sequence is the most remarkable example of the avant-garde in a mainstream Hollywood release. Fleming and Fairbanks worked with cameramen William McGann and Harris Thorpe and writer Tom Geraghty. The film incorporated cut scenes from His Majesty The American (1919).” —Kevin Brownlow
