We have included this film in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of our star Marceline Day.


    "That Model from Paris" is a touching comedy-drama starring the extraordinary silent movie star Marceline Day. The supporting cast includes Bert Lytell, Ward Crane, Eileen Percy, Arthur Hoyt, Crauford Kent, Otto Lederer, Miss DuPont, George Kuwa and others. The ladies will also be interested in a 1926 dress show coming from France.


    "That Model from Paris" is a critically acclaimed comedy-drama that has not been seen in 85 years.  The film stars Marceline Day and was directed by Louis J. Gasnier. Here are just a few of the reviews for this film:

    The film will be the special attraction at the Wintergarden. It is one of the most entertaining pictures that has been screened for some time. It is bright, well directed, with a wonderful cast, rich sets, and many wholesome laughs.  The picture is chockful of entertainment, and a great deal of credit is due to the portrayals of the various roles by an unusually good cast of screen favorites.  Marceline Day, who plays the title role, is beautiful, charming, and a screen player of great promise.  The rest of the players are well cast.  The direction is of the best. (Queensland Figaro)

    The story is well plotted, the situations novel, and the picture highly entertaining.  The continuity excellent. (Telegraph)

    Marceline Day is charming, a very good actress and chock full of appeal. (Variety)

    The film is excellent entertainment for any theater. It has spirited action, good characterizations and a human and comical story. (Moving Picture World)

    Pleasing story, nicely told. Light tale that has plenty of attractive angles to entertain general run of audiences.  The film is important in that it brings to the fore a new luminary in the person of Marceline Day in the leading role, that of a drab, unattractive sartorially, and, because of that, physically, cashier who from the chrysalis becomes the most gorgeous and radiant of butterflies. (Motion Picture News)

PLEASE NOTE:

The film has some visual imperfections at the beginning, due to the fact that a couple of the original nitrate reels were apparently in a deteriorated condition, and this is how the film was transferred to a digital format.

Early motion pictures were created with nitrate based film which is very flammable and decomposes very quickly. Many films that have survived contain frames that have partially decomposed, and this film is no exception. While the occasional missing portions of a frame may be distracting to some purists, the story and overall continuity of the film still provides an amazing experience for the viewer even though almost a century has passed.

Apart from the said imperfection the film print is of very good quality. We trust that mature silent movie lovers will judge the film only by its superior artistic merits and qualities. Get ready to enjoy the outstanding acting performance of Marceline Day and the supporting cast.

We certainly hope that you will find this movie very enjoyable and highly entertaining.
