Max Linder Filmography

Postby Brian Kirkpatrick » Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:43 pm

I recently got a number of Max Linder films from a guy in Germany. Out of curiosity, I began looking for a Max Linder filmography. I discovered several listings, but there were numerous differences between the various lists. After digging further, I was able to eliminate quite a number of titles as being reissues of earlier films. After some research, I have compiled what I believe is an acurate as possible filmography of Max Linder. I have posted it here for anyone who may be interested in Max (The man Chaplin called "My Professor"). The list is in two parts, with French films listed first, followed by films that Max made in America. The original French film titles are followed by the title given the film when it appeared in the United States. In some cases, the films were issued in the U.S. under more than one title, and alternate titles appear in parenthesis.

Brian,

Nice job of putting these all together.

Have you tried yet to determine which titles are known to be extant?

Thanks. As far as I know, all the American films exist, but Be My Wife is only a very short version and The 3 Must-Get-Theres (spoof of 3 Musketeers) is also missing some footage. Of the French films, I know that The Haunted House feature exists, and about 55 - 60 of the shorts.

Great filmography Brian. This German site lists Max's surviving films by archive. Both his European features exist in several archives, but I've never seen them released in any format. A sense of what Le Petit Cafe must have been like can be seen in Maurice Chevalier's Playboy of Paris (tho without the visual wit Linder certainly brought to the role).
