The first of two circus films from the 1920s, Jaque Catelain’s rarely seen La galerie des monstres has recently been restored by Lobster Films in Paris. Catelain also stars in the film, produced by his friend Marcel L’Herbier. Riquet, a poor Gypsy boy, and his love Ralda, a patrician Spanish girl, run away to the circus and join the sideshow, but soon discover that the real freaks and monsters of the spectacle are far from the sideshow performers themselves. (Jaque Catelain, 1924, 92 minutes)
