The Isle of Zorda/Mathias Sandorf -- March 28, 2022

Moving Picture World, 18-March-1922

In 1922, in the United States, Pathé released The Isle of Zorda, a French movie made in 1921. It was billed as a Pathépicture (To go along with Pathécomedies and Pathéserials). The French title was Mathias Sandorf, and the film was based on Jules Verne's novel of the same name. That is a book I have never read, but it sounds as if it is a revenge story like The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas père. 

The movie looks exciting. Henri Fescourt directed and Romuald Joubé played the title character.
