Produced for sophisticated adult audiences, the 10-episode French serial La Maison du mystère showcases the imaginative talents of Parisian White Russian émigré actor Ivan Mosjoukine. The involved plot centers around Julien Villandrit (Mosjoukine) and his star-crossed courtship to Régine (Hélène Darly), that inspires bitterness and jealousy in Henri (Charles Vanel), Julien's long-time associate and secret rival in love. Extremely beautiful 35mm restoration is enhanced by a brilliant new music score of Neil Brand.
