Le Capitaine Fracasse

Rescued French silent from 1929. There are swords and floppy hats with ostrich feathers so it must be a swashbuckler. Charles Boyer plays the aristocratic bad guy. Several instances of interesting camera work. Print is in pristine condition. An appalling improvised soundtrack of indescribable inappopriateness is included but can, thank God, be muted.
