(1927, Alan Crosland) John Barrymore, as 15th century beggar/poet François Villon, getting mixed up in court intrigue around Conrad Veidt’s grotesque Louis XI. But “the real star of the production was William Cameron Menzies” (James Card), crafting a Moyen Âge Paris that’s as awe-inspiring as his Bagdad (see Dec. 6). Plus Menzies-designed short The Wizard’s Apprentice (1930). Both 16mm. Approx. 109 min.
