Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legendary bass Feodor Chaliapin (1873-1938), regarded as one of the supreme singing actors of the 20th century, left an invaluable record of his art in this, his only sound film. Though primarily an actor in this film, Chaliapin is afforded ample opportunity to sing. The musical score consists of four songs by Jacques Ibert and one by Alexander Dargomyzhsky. Don Quixote is directed by G. W. Pabst, described by Leonard Maltin as “one of the prime architects of modern cinema.” As was the case with many early sound films destined for international release, it was filmed both in English and French versions. This DVD presents both versions, with English, French, German, and Italian subtitles. 115 minutes, B&W.
