Audience Reviews for The Affairs of Anatol


Your enjoyment of this will obviously depend on whether you like silents or not. As a look way back to the beginnings of narrative film making and a fashion show of what woman wore then this has some interest. It's also a rare chance to see the doomed Wallace Reid in one of his few existing films, he was deep in the thoes of morphine addiction when this was made and looks shockingly old when you realize he was only 29 when this was made he appears 50 minimum.
