Eureka Entertainment are about to release Victor Hugo’s THE MAN WHO LAUGHS; one of the most iconic and influential silent films of all time, starring Conrad Veidt and Mary Philbin. Available for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. Presented from Universal’s 4K restoration, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series, from 17 August 2020. Fancy winning a copy?
One of the most visually striking of all the later silent films, The Man Who Laughs reunites German Expressionism director Paul Leni and cinematographer Gilbert Warrenton from their horror hit the previous year, The Cat and the Canary (1927). Adapted from the Victor Hugo novel, The Man Who Laughs is Gwynplaine (an extraordinary Conrad Veidt), a carnival sideshow performer in 17th-century England, his face mutilated into a permanent, ghoulish grin by his executed father’s royal court enemies. Gwynplaine struggles through life with the blind Dea (Phantom of the Opera’s Mary Philbin) as his companion – though she is unable to see it, his disfigurement still causes Gwynplaine to believe he is unworthy of her love. But when his proper royal lineage becomes known by Queen Anne, Gwynplaine must choose between regaining a life of privilege, or embracing a new life of freedom with Dea.
