  • Legendary opera singer Geraldine Farrar assays the title role of the gypsy seductress in this silent version of CARMEN, based on the Mrime novel rather than Bizet's opera. Carmen is a sultry Spanish gypsy who attempts to seduce Don Jose (Wallace Reid), an honest military guard, so that her band of gypsy smugglers can pass through his stronghold. Carmen is a cruel tease, bewitching the military man as her true love, toreador Escamillo (Pedro de Cordoba), waits for her in the shadows. In Pastia's (Horace B. Carpenter) local tavern, Carmen dances for Don Jose as well as Escamillo in a fantastic sequence that highlights Farrar's earthy sensuality and physical connection to the romantic heroine, who became her most beloved operatic role. Carmen and Escamillo escape to Seville, but Don Jose is in hot pursuit of the young lovers, willing to do anything to win his gypsy's affection. The final scenes of this thrilling romantic tragedy, taking place at a bullfight in Seville, feature Cecil B. DeMille's trademark use of crowds and splendid visual scenery to evoke a moody atmosphere of high drama and bloodthirsty vengeance.
