The House of Mystery

Directed by Alexandre Volkoff

Flicker Alley and the Blackhawk Films® Collection are proud to present for the first time on DVD this six-and-a-half-hour epic of stylish elegance and narrative imagination, with optional English subtitles by Lenny Borger and a brand-new score by composer Neil Brand.

The House of Mystery 
Original title : La maison du mystère
Written by Jules Mary (Novel) | Ivan Mozzhukhin (as Ivan Mosjoukine) | Alexandre Volkoff
Directed by Alexandre Volkoff1921-1923
Run time : 383 minutes

The involved plot of La Maison du mystère centers around Julien Villandrit (Ivan Mosjoukine) and his star-crossed courtship to Régine de Bettigny (Hélène Darly), that inspires bitterness and jealousy in Henri Corradin (Charles Vanel), Julien's long-time associate and secret rival in love. For Mosjoukine, who contracted typhoid fever during the course of production, it remains one of the ultimate consecrations to his multifarious talents as actor, writer, and even make-up artist. 

Bonus included: slideshow featuring rare production stills and behind-the-scenes photos, as well as a booklet with an essay and biographical material on some of the actors and artists by film historian Lenny Borger.
