La Petite Américaine (The Little American) Cine Concert
Michel Lehmann, piano - La Cinémathèque de Toulouse


Program Info:
La Petite Américaine (The Little American)
Cecil B. DeMille. 1917. USA. 80 min. B & w. 35 mm. Mute. English title. Computer subtitling in French. Copy source: UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Michel Lehmann, piano

Great spectacle. Very great spectacle. The small and the big story that intertwines, and Mary Pickford who alone symbolizes a courageous and determined America in the face of the Prussian enemy. The story of a young American woman turned spy, who will have to choose between her two suitors as the Great War rages on. A melodrama of war against a background of engagement and the opportunity for Cecil B. DeMille to deploy heavy artillery, notably during an impressive sinking sequence directly inspired by the torpedoing of the liner Lusitania by a German submarine.
