Early 'Superman ’ Film
Tells Impossible Tale
Complete with side-splitting- subtitles and a collection of
amazing situations, yesterday's educational activities movies—
“The Crazy Ray,’’ “The Runaway Horse,’’ and “Juve vs.
Fantomas”—presented samples of the early work of Rene
Clair, famed French director.
“The Crazy Ray,” told an impossible tale about a scientist
who stopped all movement throughout the world by means of
a new ray. The story of the few
people in Paris who escaped, and
remedied the situation, was amus
ing, lively, and well told by the
In many ways an amateur film,
made under many difficulties and
with little money, it was repnark
rtble in setting and characteriza
“The Runaway Horse" was one
of the pioneer “chase” films. Its
short, rapid continuity proved to
be the father of the early Mack
Sennet comedies and the early
films of Charles Chaplin.
The most difficult to follow of
the movies was an example of the
early detective-adventure films
that created a furor in Paris in
1913. Its director, Feuillade, cut
the film drastically so that it
gave a dream-like impression,
which was confusing when com
bined with an old print.
