Print condition: G | Color: VG | Plain box
Set of 4 extracts from the documentary Le monde du silence [The World of Silence, 1956], co-directed by explorer and filmmaker Jacques-Yves Cousteau and renowned film director Louis Malle. This was one of the first films using extensive underwater cinematography. The following titles are included: Les jardins de la mère, Bataille avec les requins, Farandole des poissons, Jojo le mérou. Actual length is about 4 x 33m/110ft. The soundtrack consists of music and sound effects only; there is no dialogue.
Print condition varies between G- (some lines throughout) to G+ (occasional scratches or lines). Color has hardly faded, if at all, and is still very good (Agfa 4S film stock). The former owner has included the main titles of the 4 parts. The end titles are also present, although these are very short and may perhaps better be edited out. The parts have been combined on one 180m/600ft reel which comes in a plain box; artwork shown is for reference only.
Released by Film Office, France.
