Directed by the great E A Dupont (Varieté, Piccadilly) and one of the most lavish British films of the silent era in both budget and scope, Moulin Rouge stars Jean Bradin, Eve Gray and Russian-German screen sensation Olga Tschechowa in the story of a young aristocrat driven to a suicide attempt after falling in love with a young dancer and her elegant, ravishingly beautiful mother.

Set in and around the famous dancehalls of Paris, Moulin Rouge showcased British International Pictures’ engagement of leading Continental film-makers during the late 1920s. The first British film directed by Expressionist pioneer Ewald Andre Dupont, it also features Werner Brandes’ stylish, distinctively European cinematography and art direction by Oscar-winner Alfred Junge.

Filmed at Elstree through the winter of 1927, Moulin Rouge is an incredibly entertaining, energetic and sexy film which pulls you right back into 1920s Parisian life and society, an era in which anything goes.

Live piano musical accompaniment by John Sweeny. With thanks to Lobster Films, Paris.
