Ballet mécanique [short]

DIRECTORS: Fernand Léger, Dudley Murphy | WRITER: Fernand Léger | CAST: Fernand Léger, Dudley Murphy, Katherine Murphy, Katrin Murphy, Kiki de Montparnasse | France

A masterpiece. It may be, as it claims, “le premier film sans scénario,” but it most assuredly is about something. With cinematography by Dudley Murphy and Man Ray and brilliant score by George Antheil. (I viewed the 16 minute Kiesler version included in Unseen Cinema.)
