Max Linder on DVD
THE MAX LINDER COLLECTION The French comic Max Linder was the first international movie star. Charlie Chaplin regarded the insouciant dandy as a model. Most of Linder’s early work has been lost; these three digitally restored short features — “Be My Wife” (1921), “Seven Years Bad Luck” (1921) and “The Three Must-Get-Theres” (1922) — and one two-reeler — “Max Wants a Divorce” (1917) — are from his two late-career American periods.
The set is available from Kino.
